Miss Supranational is less than two weeks away from crowning its winner and South Africa's Thato Mosehle has her eye on the crown. 

Thato touched down in Poland a week ago and is ready to show the world what Mzansi is made of. She has already impressed the judges with her poise and grace. 

When she is not taking part in the preliminary activities, the 25-year-old his bonding with her roommate, Miss Supranational USA Shivali Patel. 

The beauty queens teamed up for a fun video about South African phrases. Shivali, who hopes to one day speak 10 languages, got off to a rocky start.

Before she could even get to phrase one, she got tongue-tied pronouncing ‘isiXhosa’.
