Today we are crushing on the 22-year-old Miss Uganda, Quiin Abenakyo who became the first Miss World Africa from Uganda on December 8, 2018 because we appreciate her poise and impactful project on teenage pregnancies which led to her historic feat at the Miss World 2018 finals in Sanya city.
Abenakyo was born in February 1996, to Ugandan parents Mr Charles Sembera and Ms Alice Kyamulesire in Mayuge District. As of November 2018, she is expected to graduate with a degree in business computing, from Makerere University Business School.
During the 2018 Miss Uganda competition, Abenakyo beat 21 other contestants to win the crown. The competition was held at the Kampala Sheraton Hotel. The chief judge at the event was Zari Hassan, who also doubles as the patron of the Miss Uganda beauty pageant. She won a Toyota Wish compact multi-purpose vehicle.
In addition, Abenakyo and the top two runners-up, Patience Martha Ahebwa and Trya Margach were awarded scholarships to the Uganda Aviation School that include airline cabin crew training.
The current state minister of tourism in Uganda reported that the government is in contention to make Quiin Abenakyo the tourism ambassador of Uganda since she has become a global icon after finishing as 2nd Runner-Up at Miss World 2018.
