The hit beauty pageant is back for round 3! Last year saw Shalom Aburu from the host city of Seattle winning the prestigious crown. Will Chicago repeat this feat? This year’s theme is ‘Empowered by Diversity’ and the prize includes a trip to Uganda for the winner, and UNAA’s ‘Emerging Leaders’ Scholarships for the top 3.
About Miss Uganda North America
The Miss Uganda North America Leadership Program was started in 2017 as a partnership between Inzozi Fashion House and the Ugandan North American Association (UNAA). Today it has grown into an independent leadership program and continues to successfully execute various initiatives around the globe to implement its objectives.
The program supports young Ugandan women living or studying in North America to achieve their educational and leadership goals by promoting awareness of global issues and their cultural heritage. It also creates opportunities for them to connect with Ugandan and international communities globally to discover ways to collaborate on business, women’s issues, education, charity and other initiatives. Recently, the founders of Miss Uganda North America spun off a new program – African Women Lead – that will extend its initiatives to all African women around the globe.
This year’s Miss Uganda North America theme is ‘Empowered By Diversity.’ Women bring so much uniqueness to society. Uniqueness can be in the form of ancestry, socio-economic status, religious beliefs, political beliefs, race, preferences, lifestyle, past experiences and much more. The aim of this theme is to work with our Class of 2019 to explore how this diversity can be used to better the world, and to spread a message of tolerance by celebrating the richness of culture and the strength of society that are created by diversity.
