Kenyan beauty finishes among top five at Miss World competition
Miss World Kenya 2016 Evelyn Njambi emerged among the top five in the Miss World competitions held on Sunday.
Ms Njambi, who replaced Roshanara Ebrahim in August after a breach of contract, emerged top in Africa during this year’s pageant.
The 22 year old interior design student from Kiambu County broke down in tears when she was announced among the top beauties.
When asked on how to improve access to education in the world, Ms Njambi quoted South Africa’s Nelson Mandela on education to all adding that parents have to first be informed of the importance of education to ensure every child goes to school.
Ms Njambi said she has a dream of becoming a news anchor despite her training in interior design because she loves to be the voice of the voiceless.
Her passion in interior designing started when she was 10 years old as she would organize and reorganize her father’s living room.
Ms Njambi’s achievement is a first for the country as in 2014, the then Miss World Kenya Idah Nguma only came close to be among the top 11 beauties.
In 2012, Shamim Ali a Mombasa born model managed to become top 15 in the world.
