Rose Manfere, who was crowned Miss Tanzania 2020/2021, will not be able to represent the country at Miss World 2021 due to unknown reasons. The Miss Tanzania organization recently appointed Juliana Rugumisa as the official representative of Tanzania for the 70th edition of Miss World to be held in December in Puerto Rico. The announcement was made via Miss Tanzania’s official social media account.
Juliana was adjudged as the first runner-up at Miss Tanzania 2020.
The 23-year-old beauty queen has a bachelor’s degree in prosthetics and orthotics at Moshi KCMC. She is passionate about beauty pageants.
She decided to enter the Miss Tanzania pageant just so she could fulfill her dream of helping the disabled and her project has been renamed ‘ABILITY TO DISABILITY’. She wants to use the platform given to her to assist children with physical disabilities in Tanzania to obtain assistive devices, rehabilitation services and proper education. She wants to excel in the beauty industry and, as a prosthetist and orthotist, use the two platforms to help and raise voice for children with physical disabilities so that they can get basic rights, including the right to education.
The beauty from Tanzania, believes that a good leader is someone who praises in public and addresses the problems in private. “Good leaders look for constructive solutions and focus on moving forward,” stated Juliana.
