Empowerment: Jesca Sserwadda, 23 was one of the contestants in the Miss Uganda beauty pageant representing Masaka City.

Tell us about yourself
I am Jesca Sserwadda, 23 years old, from Masaka District, a student at Uganda Martyrs University, also a professional make-up and nail artist. I come from a religious family which has taught me to be faithful during my youthful stage.
What inspired you to audition for Miss Uganda?
I honestly did not get the idea to contest for Miss Uganda, it was God’s timing. I have never competed in any pageantry, so it was a big surprise for my family and friends.
Was your family supportive of you joining the contest?
Yes they were. I remember I asked my father first because he is a bishop in one of the churches in Masaka, I did not want to get involved without his consent, so he gave me the go-ahead.
