Miss Uganda North America is a leadership program managed by Texas-based Inzozi Fashion House in partnership with UNAA. The program aims to arm young Ugandan women living in North America with leadership skills and awareness of global issues, and to help create leadership opportunities for all contestants in their local communities.
2017 was the first edition of Miss Uganda North America. A beauty pageant was held on Friday September 1st 2017, the first day of UNAA Miami 2017, where Yvonne Kushemererwa from Vancouver, Canada emerged as Miss Uganda North America 2017/18.
The event is back for UNAA Seattle 2018 and applications open March 5th 2018. We encourage all young women aged 18 – 30 to apply!
Other than contesting, we’re always seeking members of our communities to take part in this empowering event as mentors and judges. Miss Uganda North America also recognizes leading Ugandan women in the diaspora.
