SOMALIA, Sumeya Abdirahman Ali
I am 23 years old and studying International Relations at the University of Nairobi. I enjoy travelling and discovering new things. I desire to represent my country everywhere I go, portraying her interests and policies.
What makes you unique?
I am a risk taker who believes very few people would like to take chances in a foreign country. I am always a happy soul whatsoever the situation, even if bad. I have observed my fellow contestants and all of them that can’t do without makeup and hair. Well, I am unique in that I feel more comfortable and confident without.
What is your understanding of the theme “Africanism”?
Africanism is where you accept your skin, culture and people. It is also where you disagree with the negative effects of Westerners and believe that Africa is born in you.
What will you do with the prize money if you win?
As we all know, Somalia is one of the African countries that is portrayed in the media as dangerous because of many killings. I will use my crown to promote employment amongst youth. We have all heard the saying that ” an idle mind is the devil workshop”. With this in mind, I will cut down the evils happening in my country.
