When the Judges said our winning question was general and Hindu is answering first I gave it all whereby contestants repeated after me. I was just acting a bad girl for them to have nothing to say that was a funny memory to me (The Question was to market Ugandan) How has been the journey from that night to date?

Yeah, my sister Janat (Miss Earth Fire 2015/16) and best National costume of that reign, she is the woman I compared myself to and I was inspired by her costume sense of creativity and her reasoning capacity. That’s why she went ahead and made my costume too. Being a woman who looks exactly like me from day one of un veiling us the public expected me to do good like her (I had a challenge where the public was comparing us that is Mbale of 2015 & of 2016) To someone out there who doesn’t know Miss Earth, What is it all about? Miss earth Uganda is a beauty pageant that aims at empowering young Ugandan ladies with the knowledge and a platform to create a sustainable difference which helps in the protection and preservation of the environment.

And Miss Earth Air is Mbale, I come from a supportive community and having been raised by it, it was a blessing to me having not have ashamed Mbale ( the capital of eastern Uganda) Mbale has been supportive to me way back 2014 in all projects I have been running be it in schools and the communities to date. Presenting to them what I brought home was something I couldn’t wait. Did you feel any jealous towards the Queen of the night? Nope, didn’t feel jealous at all being she was my roommate and all I wanted was the best for our room of 5 ,because luck is also another issue so we helped each other where weakness was where all of us were on top 7 and the 3 of us were on top 4, Earth, Air and Fire.
