BURUNDI, Ornella Gahimbare
I am 24 years old and currently studying Management and Administration. I was the second Dauphine Miss Burundi in 2016 and I have also participated in three Pan-African competitions: Miss Naiades Benin and Miss University Africa and Miss Africa Beauty Queen in Nigeria. I am a model and coach at Umuringa, Burundi.
What makes you unique?
My personality, my character, my self-confidence, I’m a person who doesn’t do anything in halves. I trust what I’m doing and that’s what allowed me to be what I am now
What is your understanding of the theme “Africanism”?
Africa is a place that offers cultural and heritage diversity, a history of unity, hard work, trust and so on. It is also the place where people strive to protect what they have already achieved so far because it is these roots which define our Africanism and that is why I am proud to be African.
