When Sheila Udida was crowned Miss Kisumu City 2016, participants said she stole the show with a saucy strut, an infectious smile and a calm self-confidence that belied her 19 years.
Ms Udida is now banking on her experience, beauty and poise to catapult her to national attention as she is contesting for Miss Universe Kenya.
“My journey this far has been humbling. It feels really great being among the final sixteen. For me,this is a big achievement. I thank God,” said Ms Udida. “I am glad to have been given this opportunity to get new life experiences that I never imagined I’d have. It’s a great opportunity to move me forward in the modeling industry. It’s a blessing.”
The 19 year old 2nd year International Relations student at Maseno University is counting on support from all Kenyans to nominate her as the country’s representative at the global stage. Sheila admits that this opportunity comes with a lot of sacrifice, time and energy but she is well prepared since she believes nothing in life comes easily.
She says, “I am passionate about giving back to society and I’m an environmentalist. Besides,I love exploring different cultures and I would like to show the world that there’s substance from Africa. Having come from the long journey to get me to where I am then I believe I have a resolve to make the world a better place for people from the long commute walks to enjoy life.”
