Slyvia Namutebi Allibhai who is also former miss Uganda for the year 2011 has been crowned 3rd Mrs World replacing Crystal Newman who had a 10 year reign. Mrs. Sylvia Namutebi Allibhai will be representing Uganda at Mrs. World Pageant happening this year in Sri Lanka.
Mrs. Sylvia Namutebi Allibhai expressed her joy through an announcement on her social media pages where she said, “I enjoy working with children and the youth, helping them reach their full potential in various aspects of education, entrepreneurship or self-esteem and confidence building. I like to use my position in adding my voice to the under-represented to create real solutions to problems we face as a community.”
Mrs. Sylvia Wilson Namutebi Alibhai reigned as Miss Uganda in 2011 which led her to represent Uganda at the Miss World Pageant in the same year. She was instrumental in reviving the Miss Uganda Pageant as the Miss Uganda Project coordinator for the years 2018 and 2019 during which she cemented her portfolio in the pageantry world. She has since dedicated her life to working with different charity causes around the country as well as working with the Miss Uganda Foundation where she pioneered the project to eradicate Jiggers from the Busoga region of Uganda in 2012.
Mrs. Sylvia is a marketing and business strategist by profession and runs a private consultancy. She has a background in human resource management and international Business. She is also a Director of the Special Events Talent Africa Group.
Mrs. Sylvia has worked with children living with disabilities, families affected by the HIV pandemic and recently started the Smile With Sly; a project aimed at helping single mothers and young people affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. The project also aims at raising awareness geared towards safe motherhood in marginalised communities of Uganda in partnership with the Talent Africa Foundation where she is a director.
Mrs. Sylvia chose pageantry because it gives her a platform to impact the change she’d like to see in society. She looks forward to serving as Mrs. Uganda 2021.
