Susan Anyango is Miss World Kenya 2011




She is 6 feet tall, slight in weight, very soft spoken (a little coy even),ever smiling and is the proud owner of not onlysusan2011 the most coveted beauty crown (which she probably will keep for a year)in the country but a prestigious title as well. She happens to be only 19 and the Miss Kenya 2011 -2012. Susan Anyango is her name and one thing you should know immediately is that she is not your average 19 year old. Within a few minutes into the interview I learn that this beauty seated right in front of me has been through a lot in her 19 years of life.

First of all I had to stop her from apologizing too much. She was just a few minutes late for our one on one which she explained was from traffic jam (always a bummer). Her smile greets you from whatever corner you are at and smile she loves to do. She is warm and polite. Someone you can see as being friends with instantly. It’s no wonder she won the most coveted crown… this girl is lovable! I’m guessing life is always supposed to change and become overwhelming  for someone who holds such a prestigious crown in her hands but Susan is not really fazed by all that, she is comfortable with the little things that life brings her way. This you can see right from the start by how she is dressed. So simple in a check pilot shirt and skinny jeans and no  make-up on her face whatsoever. She looked effortlessly good.

Susan, the last born in a family of three has been forced by circumstances to grow up. For a 19 year old you would expect some jumpy, hyper girl but she is so humble and lady like. She smiles a lot (a beautiful smile that she uses to hide all the pain I guess) which is a good thing. It helps bring out her warmth even more.

Natasha Meto is Miss World Kenya 2010

''That’s the kind of African lady that will win the Miss World title,” a judge, Derrick Asetto, confessed on Saturday night when Natasha Meto wasnatasha2010 crowned the 2010 Miss World Kenya. The 20-year-old beauty queen waiting to join university this year, brushed aside stiff competition from 11 other contestants.

Natasha, will represent Kenya at the 2010 Miss World event to be held in Sanya, China on October 31. She also won a brand new Toyota IST car. Immediately after winning, when asked how she felt, she told the audience that she didn’t know how to describe her moment of fame. “I have no words to describe this moment,” she retorted. More than 2,000 aspirants from all over the country competed for the crown. Only 24 made it to the Miss World House where 12 qualified for the Grand Finale.

The judges were Miss World Kenya Franchise holder Mrs Terry Mungai, former model Tracy Ombajo, Survivor Africa contestant and model Derrick Asetto, and Robert Derby, among others. The models were subjected to fast-track-events where they were taught to catwalk. Then there was sports, public speaking, talent and language — basic Chinese phrases.

The first runner up position went to 21-year-old dancer Nderaisho Mshila and second runner up was grabbed by 18-year-old Farida Diba. In other awards for the 12 contestants, 19-year-old Faith dressed by Angel Smiles took the 2010 Miss Photogenic Award and 22-year-old Mercy dressed by Zame won the best sports award. A dress designed by Dola Creations and show-cased by 22-year-old Evangeline Karimi, a front office receptionist at 680 Hotel, was voted as the best outfit. The dress will be won by the Kenyan contestant for the Miss World event in China.

Already she wants to grab the crown for Kenya. “I came here during my first pageant and won. I can bring the Miss World title to Kenya,” she said. She hit the stage clad in a flowing dress by local designer, Paula-Rembo. Natasha’s story begins from Mosoriot near Eldoret where she was born. Growing up in the village and the daily hurdles were difficult.
