Miss West Africa 2011 – Stella Bangura to represent Sierra Leone!

Stella Bangura is a final year student pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration at the Institute of Public Administrationand Management (IPAM), University of  Sierra Leone.  She will be representing her country in the upcoming Miss West Africa Beauty Pageant in Banjul, The Gambia on 10th December 2011.

Speaking to this reporter recently, Miss Bangura said pageantry is not an easy task because it involves lots of commitment and dedication to market the country at international level. She reiterated the fact that pageantry in Sierra Leoneis tagged for less important young ladies in society, and added that she is ready to sell the good image of the country abroad. “The more investment in the country, the more jobs for the people and it will help to boom the economy,” she said.

Stella is a famous Sierra Leonean that has represented her country in the Miss ECOWAS beauty pageant and Miss University Africa.

She is a philanthropist at heart, working with Zone SL, a charity organization and partnering with the Thinking Pink Breast Cancer Foundation and other charitable organizations. This has given her the opportunity to help make a difference in the lives of people. “My platform is Breast Cancer information dissemination and education for women and children as most women are yet to understand the dangers of breast cancer and how to prevent or cure the disease,” she told this press.

Stella who is currently working at Africell is a business magnate in the making and hopes to become an influential woman of substance and a successful owner of a multi-national business and a charitable foundation. “I am very grateful for each day and step I take and honour every one of life’s gifts! … The journey begins at home,” she said.

Sierra Leone’s Minister of Tourism and Cultural Affairs, Victoria Saidu Kamara said since her Ministry is responsible to promote the true picture of Sierra Leone’s culture, they are very happy to partner with Miss Bangura to represent the country.

Miss West Africa was founded to promote a positive image for West African Countries by creating awareness of the social, cultural, health, wealth and the beauty issues withinWest Africa. With the variety of beauty of West African women from around the world, the Miss West Africa Pageants is expected to explore the beauty of West African women from around the world to bring one being and soul of natural and great talent, beauty and brains to represent West Africans worldwide.

In 2010 the concept of Miss West Africa international was introduced with a view of discovering various Regional Miss West Africa queens in all 16 West African countries and some countries abroad such as Miss West Africa UK, Miss West Africa USA, Miss West Africa Canada and more, to compete for the ultimate Miss West Africa title, Miss West Africa International. Miss West Africa International is now a worldwide beauty pageant and the title is accessible only to Miss West Africa Regional winners. The event is expected to be most memorable in the world.
