22 year old Ugandan contestant, Quinn Abenakyo may have narrowly missed out on the ultimate crown, having ended up second runner-up at the just ended 68thMiss World Pageant final in Sanya, China but still had enough to cheer about.
Former queen Manushi Chhilar crowned Mexico’s Vanessa Ponce Miss World 2018 from the five finalists ahead of Thailand’s Nicolene Limsnukan and Quinn Abenakyo respectively.
And it was the Ugandan beauty who eventually, and albeit rather obviously, ended up being crowned the 2018 Miss World Africa beating 20 other contestants from the continent.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Uganda Tourism Board [UTB], Daudi Migereko, has hinted that Ms. Abenakyo will likely succeed the stunning socialite, Zari Hassan, as the country’s tourism ambassador just two months after the latter’s appointment by Godfrey Kiwanda, the country’s Minister for Tourism and Widlife.
Several high profile personalities have already endorsed the disposition after Uganda’s latest global icon earned high praise and recognition both for the impressive finish and breathtaking performances, remarkably matching beauty with brains and brawn throughout the contests.
The reigning Miss Uganda completed a roller-coaster year in 2018. Her surreal finish amongst the globe’s top five  finest feminines ranks as the East African nation’s highest ever placement at the pageantry.
