What made you bring back the Miss Universe franchise to Zambia?
Miss Universe Zambia 2010 changed my life completely and it’s from that I would love to see another beautiful young Lady’s life change for better. I feel we should support each and every girl for being brave and confident to take up this Journey.

What’s your view on the divided opinion in Zambia on modeling, and the Miss Universe Pageant?
Pageants or Modeling, in general, should never be seen as High Profile prostitution, it’s a Career Choice just like any other, the only difference is that not everyone can do it and I worked hard to get the franchise back in Zambia because I saw the potential in many Zambian young ladies.
By all standards, I am a very successful model that Zambia has produced in a long time, however, I suffer from the common sickness most successful models suffer from and that’s fighting hate and negative comments, I stay humble and grateful because I Am me, because of Many of you, and I salute those that have encouraged these young ladies and supported Miss Universe Zambia.
