Miss Lorriane Nadal, Miss University Africa Beauty 2017 is currently visiting Uganda in a bid to promote the tourism industry.
“I came in all the way from Mauritius to promote Uganda’s tourism potential through a documentary we are working on” said Nadal to SoftPower News at Uganda Museum.
The beauty queen was in Uganda following an invitation from Uganda Tourism Board (UTB), UWEC in partnership with Miss University Africa working in a collaborative project to promote the country’s tourism industry and champion girl child education.
The documentaries were shot in different parts of Uganda including Bwindi and Queen Elizabeth national parks.
We caught up with her while she attended the Second Fish Festival last weekend at the Uganda Museum. She chanced at savouring the diverse taste of Uganda’s wide ranging fish varieties during the fest.
The beauty queen stated that education of the girl child was very essential for the development of the country.
“By engaging them as young girls, the country will be conserving its natural heritage and traditional norms cherished and held high by mostly the girls who embrace beauty pageants,” she said.
Nadal noted that the girl children also need to be protected from exploitation but rather guided to achieve their dream.
In her view, the beauty of the girl children should not be judged on the looks of one’s body.
She revealed to this website that her dream has been to promote the decency of the girl child while on the walk way in a more sensitive and attractive way that embraces traditional cultural norms.
