Precious Sylvester Lyimo

Tanzania

Precious is a Law student and model who is also the 2019 Miss Universe Tanzania first runner up and Miss Tanzanite 2018. What makes her unique is that she tends not to give up easily in life regardless of the circumstances. She is also passionate about community service, especially helping children living with disabilities to get access to basic needs such as education and helping them explore and use their talents to better their future and be respected in the society.

For Precious, humanity is being compassionate and considerate of other people in society no matter their race, tribe, social class, disability and education level. “It’s helping people with all your heart and not expecting anything in return,” she adds.

Should she win, she’ll use some of the money to finish her education, 20% of it to set up a foundation and have a Centre where less privileged kids especially the disabled will be taken care of and sponsored to get education. She’ll then use the rest to set up a business for herself and family.

She believes that giving up is not an option and one should set their goals and work towards them no matter the hurdles they come across.
