2013 Miss Africa Utah Pageant

In the Grande Ballroom on UVU campus on March 29th, a new queen was crowned!

After watching a lengthy evening of talents, procession of evening gowns, and judge's panel final questions the crowd was anxious for the decision.

And the Winner is:

Miss Somalia, Jawahir Ahmed!

With Miss Ghana, Nana Akofua Mensah, as 1st runner up!

As a 2013 Miss Africa Utah Sponsor, World Joy is thrilled and honored to have these lovely and accomplished young women attend and assist with our fundraising events. We hope to also welcome them to World Joy's villages this summer. Congratulations to all of the contestants and Gloria Kajo, the pageant's founder, for a lovely evening.
