She al­so won the se­ni­or per­so­na­li­ty a­ward and the de­bu­tant a­ward.

An­na-Ma­ria said: "It's not the beau­ty, but the big lo­ving he­art and in­spi­ra­ti­on to help ot­hers in need. The cro­wn doe­sn't ma­ke you the per­son you should be and all who we­re on the sta­ge that day, are the most beau­ti­ful pe­op­le. "I lo­ved being t­he­re, met a­ma­zing lo­ving souls and en­joy­ed e­very sin­gle mo­ment of it."

Her nep­hew, S­te­fa­no Bui­ten­dag (5), won the Tiny Mr We­stern Ca­pe 2019 tit­le.
