Veteran Model Judith Heard will represent Uganda at the upcoming Miss Elite Beauty Pageant in Egypt. The 34-year mother of 3 old will tussle it out with younger models in their 20s for the ultimate prize.
Judith Heard who been in the fashion and beauty pageant business for close to 2 decades has been nominated as the only representative from Uganda at the first-ever Miss Elite World Pageant competition to be held in Egypt.
This is a dream come true to Heard who says it has always been a dream for her to share her story through modeling, showcasing art, and now pageantry.
“We grew up through rape and other social injustices in Uganda. This situation inspired me to start an advocacy campaign named DAY ONE to combat rape and sexual assault in Uganda”. She said.
Despite being into her mid-thirties and mother fully married, she is set to battle a line of 31 other contestants representing different countries like Morocco, Kenya, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, Greece, India, Colombia, Lebanon, and many more.
“Due to our work and perseverance, we are inspiring people in Uganda and Africa at large to stand up and speak about it! I have been following the latest news concerning rape and sexual assault in Egypt, it is exemplary how the government and the people of Egypt are pushing to give justice to those victims”. Heard explains.
