Mrs. Sylvia Namutebi Allibhai will be representing Uganda at Mrs. World Pageant happening this year in Sri Lanka. Due to Covid -19 restrictions, the pageant for the first time since its inception held virtual nominations to identify candidates that would best represent their respective nations at this international affair.
These candidates were later on unveiled on the pageant’s official Facebook and Instagram pages.
Mrs. Sylvia Namutebi Allibhai expressed her joy through a social media post that read, “I enjoy working with children and the youth, helping them reach their full potential in various aspects of education, entrepreneurship or self-esteem and confidence building. I like to use my position in adding my voice to the under-represented to create real solutions to problems we face as a community.”
Mrs. Sylvia Wilson Namutebi Alibhai was crowned as Miss Uganda in 2011 which led her to represent Uganda at the Miss World Pageant in the same year. She was instrumental in reviving the Miss Uganda Pageant as the Miss Uganda Project coordinator for the years 2018 and 2019 during which she cemented her portfolio in the pageantry world.
She has since dedicated her life to working with different charity causes around the country as well as working with the Miss Uganda Foundation where she pioneered the project to eradicate jiggers from the Busoga region in 2012.
Mrs. Sylvia is a marketing and business strategist by profession and runs a private consultancy firm. She has a background in human resource management and international business. She is also a Director of the Special Events at Talent Africa Group.
Mrs. Sylvia has also been worked with children living with disabilities, families affected by the HIV pandemic and recently started the Smile With Sly; a project aimed at helping single mothers and young people affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
The project also aims at raising awareness geared towards safe motherhood in marginalized communities of Uganda in partnership with the Talent Africa Foundation where she is a director.
Mrs. Sylvia chose pageantry because it gives her a platform to impact the change she’d like to see in society. She looks forward to serving as Mrs. Uganda 2021.
