Reigning Miss Uganda, Quiin  Abenakyo wrote history when she made it to the top 30 finalists of the Miss World 2018 competition, something that no Miss Uganda has ever accomplished. The historic moment happened in Sanya ,China at the 68th edition of the Miss World pageant.

The beauty impressed the panel with her cause, which is fighting teenage pregnancies in Uganda as 1 in 4 adolescent girls in Uganda aged 14 to 19 have a child or are pregnant.

Quiin has since received praises from Ugandans, including musician Bebe Cool who wrote a message of gratitude, thanking her for raising the country’s flag high.

“I would love to congratulate Miss Uganda Quiin Abenakyo for making it to the top 30 finalists for Miss World 2018, a first for Uganda in the entire history of Miss World. Thank you for joining some of us in efforts to show the world that Uganda is full of beauty, talent and brains among others. I applaud you for the attention you are giving to the plight of young girls suffering with early pregnancies. This is true demonstration that each one of us as Ugandans has it within their power to contribute to the wellbeing of our country using the means available to them. My contribution is through music and yours is through beauty with a purpose. Instead of criticizing government for the things that are not going well within our communities, can we all in our respective disciplines ask what we can do for our motherland Uganda..Can we account for our contribution to our country before pointing fingers at who hasn’t done what for us. Miss Quinn Abenakyo, we are looking forward to your crowning as Miss World at the finale by God’s grace. I too am playing my part, but then again, I AM BEBE COOL.” He wrote

Congratulations Quiin!!..
