I went to the Miss Africa USA Pageant this saturday in Atlanta. Miss Sierra Leone came in second and she really made us proud – she really rocked the house with her entrance to tutu party and her talent – african dance to some Ojeh songs. She was also very articulate talking about Christiana Thorpe and her contributions to education and democracy. Of course we all believed she would win and were so dissapointed when Miss Nigeria won. Miss Salone was also the only contestant to win 2 awards – Miss natural beauty and winner of the online voting. Kudos Mbalu for a job well done [img width=18 height=17]https://forum.visitsierraleone.org/smileys/smiley32.gif[/img]
The winner overall was the attendance by Sierra Leoneans – there were probably about 500 people at the event and it seemed like about 100 of them were Sierra Leoneans – we outnumbered all other countries 3 to 1, and most of us had Sierra Leonean flags. You could see folks looking at us like these people really got it together! Anyway nice event, attended by many VSLers also.
Congrats to Mbalu she is indeed FAB!!!I was so rooting for her!!!but she did great!!hope to see the pictures later.
