Journalist: Tell us more about your journey to represent Rwanda in the international contestant Miss Supranational 2022. How did you end up representing Rwanda in Miss Supranational 2022? any challenges faced 

 ⁠I was approached by Miss Supranational organizer Mr. Gerald when he saw me competing in Miss Warsaw in Poland, where he was invited as the guest. I am a model and before joining this competition the Miss Supranational 2022 I knew and had some skills in modeling like cut-walking, posing, and public speaking.

Journalist: Are there any challenges you faced while searching to enter Miss Supranational? if yes how did you overcome these challenges? 

My journey to miss supranational wasn’t as challenging as I thought it would but of course, the main challenge for me was that our Country [Rwanda] is well known for many other things. But when it comes to beauty pageants it’s not where we shine as Rwandans. I am sure anybody [Rwandan] ever attended international contests knows well that it takes a well-known country in beauty pageants to win it. It is not really just the girl.  

Well, the only way to overcome those challenges is to just work hard and do my part well, that way whether I win or not. But I never feel guilty about anything when it comes to being who I am. I was representing my country and we did the best we can.

Journalist: What advice can you share with the African queens who are looking to participate in the future of the Miss Supranational? what should they put in mind before applying? 

 ⁠My advice to my beautiful African queens with a dream of joining Miss Supranational is; First to know that you are beautiful enough to win that Crown. Secondly, make sure you are well prepared both mentally and physically. Lastly, practice well your catwalks and as well as public speaking rehearsal if possible.

Journalist: At Rifi Dance and Fashion Show 2023, you decided to wear that very well-made outfit with a dark blue color. Is the blue your favorite color? what is your favorite color and how do you choose clothes to wear/style and why? Do you have a fashion designer?

Well, honestly I am such a person who loves to play with many colours because apart from being a model am even a stylist and I have my own clothing brand. I always choose an outfit depending on the occasion but mostly depending on the mood I am having, so with that being said am my own stylist.

Journalist: What is your view on the fashion industry in Rwanda in terms of fashion design and modeling?

I always feel emotions and even tears come in my eyes when I am asked these questions. Listen, because I see how the Rwandan fashion industry has grown tremendously within a short period, proud wouldn’t be enough words to describe how happy that makes me feel. I can say that modeling is doing very well. You can see many models participating in international fashion weeks, like Paris Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, and many more.

In terms of fashion designers, It is still growing and I am very proud of my brothers and sisters in fashion design. The creative industry is not easy to maintain, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic which impacted some fashion houses but we are doing good. I want to send congratulations to everyone who is trying to increase his or her efforts to create more collections and new designs to promote made in Rwanda and made in Africa.
