Popular Kampala supermodel Judith Heard is set to fly Uganda’s flag high as she represents the country in the Miss Elite World pageant, which is slated to be held in Egypt.
It might be the first time in history that a pageant above 29 years runway limit competes with contestants who are still in their 20s.
This norm was defied by African model from Uganda Judith Heard after being nominated as the ONLY representative from Uganda at the first ever MISS ELITE WORLD pageant competition to be held in Egypt.
According to Judith Heard’s longtime Personal Assistant, Bryan Morel, for the 34-year-old Ugandan model, it has always been a dream to share her story through modeling, showcasing art and now pageantry.
She is set to battle a line of 31 other contestants representing different countries.
Some of these countries include; Morocco, Kenya, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, Greece, India, Colombia, Lebanon and many more.
Judith Heard’s Quotes;
“We grew up through rape and other social injustices in Uganda. This situation inspired me to start an advocacy campaign named DAY ONE https://dayoneug.com to combat rape and sexual assault in Uganda.
“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.”
