Ms America 2015

Zambian model , Amanda Sibeso Wamunyima , has been crowned Ms America, one of the most competitive shows in the United States of America.

Amanda beat the 50 other beauties representing their states in the USA. She holds the Ms. Florida crown, and that crown allowed her to compete on the National level as Ms America.

Ms-America-2She now starts a long journey as Ms. America a role that involves a lot of social advocacy. This however will not be something new to Amanda who is currently the CEO of Miss Zambia USA, a beauty pageants for Zambian beauties who live in the USA.

Zambians should be proud of this achievement, and extend their congratulatory praise to Ms Amanda Sibeso Wamunyima for flying the Zambian flag to the highest.

Ms. America, not Miss America, has most of the trappings of a typical beauty pageant – the gowns, the interviews, the glamorous head shots.

But there are differences: It attracts women ages 26 to into their 60s. It doesn’t require a swimsuit or a talent. The winner is asked to use her crown to advance a worthy cause.

CEO Susan Jenkse, an Irvine resident, was the first Ms. America winner when she won as Ms. Colorado in 1997; she raised awareness about violence in schools just a couple years before the Columbine High School shootings in her home state.

    • Ba LT Google is your friend! The pageant title she won is not the prestigious Miss America owned by Donald Trump. This is Ms America for women who are not a “ten” but rather women who rank “5” and below on the beauty scale!

    • That’s why PF should genuinely embrace the One Zambia One Nation motto. From her Names she is a Zambian inclined to Bulozi but representing the whole Zambia. It doesn’t matter whether you are Lozi, Tonga or Bemba, outside the country we are all called zambians. But why should it be an unwritten rule that UmuTonga teti ateke? Every you still their votes (2001 & 2015)to perpetuate yourselves in power. This is similar to the Kenyan scenario whereby Kikuyus always want to rule at the exclusion of the Luos and Maasais. Yet when Obama of Luo origins won the American Presidency he made proud not only Kenyas but all Black Africans. Yes Moi was from the small Kalinjin tribe but he was lucky to rule because when Kenyatta died he was a sitting vice President.

      The point I raising is related to…

    • The point I raising is related to what the watchdog has reported 28/08/2015 that Tongas & Lozis are being uprooted from GRZ institutions in Kasama.
      This tribalism has been up scaled to unprecedented levels. At least even under Chiluba a chap like Kabimba cud be Town Clerk for Kitwe & Lusaka. Have you noticed that about 90% of influential positions like District Commissioners & Town Clerks in Lusaka & Copperbelt are only held by Bwalyas, Kangwas, Changwes, Mutales, Mwansas, Chilufyas, Musondas, etc all with origins in Muchinga & Kasama. Not even Sichalwes, Simwingas, Siwakwis or their mbuyas Phiris, Bandas, Nyirendas, Mbewes or even Lungus. This is despite LSK & CB provinces being cosmopolitan. Just name the DCs & TCs then you’ll know what I mean.

  2. Mbonyi ya siloko mwana Numwa Imakena poho yensu-wiii! Bopoloha m’me! At least Bisas can learn to sire decent looking being as opposed to siring creatures like someone we all know whose aesthetic looks actually give credence to the belief that humans are descended from apes! Anyway, these creatures from kwa Nabwalya may actually be descended from apes.

    • Ms America is the Spacio of pageants in the US. Miss America being the Ferrari. She’s basically won the equivalent of Miss Kalikiliki 2015. In the States.

  6. Only Zambian news sources are reporting this.

    This is clearly not the competition that we expected. The reporting is misleading and deceiving.

    Let us not exaggerate achievements, you are embarrassing this young lady.

    The writer of this article clearly has never been to the USA otherwise they would have known the quality of girls entering these competitions is very high. This model does not stand a chance, that is the truth.

  8. Looking at the photos, I cannot connect them with beauty pageants. The women look a bit large or border line obese. Something is wrong with this story. Miss America competition ifor 2016 will be held on 13 th sept 2015. How can someone win a competition to reign for 3 months?

  9. People stop criticizing everything… Just use a search engine like Google to look her up and the pageant.There are 2 different pageants: ‘Miss’ and ‘Ms’.

    From the Internet: The Ms. America Pageant is for women 26 years of age & up: Single, Divorced, or Married. Competition is based on: Interview, Sportswear, Evening Gown & On-Stage Question.

    • And I have to say it’s poor journalism from the writer… They should have added more information to explain the difference between the 2 pageants to their readers. And add a link to the pageant’s website or Facebook page.

    • wena we all have been to a british education system. What is the difference between the different pageants: ‘Miss’ and ‘Ms’. What about “Miss”, “Ms” and “Mrs” and even “Messrs” pageants?. Do not confuse elderly people

  12. I can’t help but think LT deliberately reported this story hopping to confuse many Zambians into thinking this gal won the Miss America pageant, which is an entirely different matter. Don’t get me wrong, I think they are all silly, but still I think there was intentional deception on LT’s part.

  13. Even Google doesn’t know she was crowned Ms America. Stupid Google. From now on I’ll do my searches through LT.

  14. MS. America is a pageant NOT affiliated with Miss America (.org). Donald Trump owns MISS TEEN USA, MISS USA AND MISS UNIVERSE. These latter 3 are NOT affiliated in any way to MS AMERICA, nor MISS America.

    MISS AMERICA is the pageant with the talent portion.

    MISS TEEN USA, MISS USA AND MISS UNIVERSE are based on looks, poise, etc;

    MS AMERICA seems to be solely about social advocacy.
