Empowerment: Jesca Sserwadda, 23 was one of the contestants in the Miss Uganda beauty pageant representing Masaka City. Although she finished in fifth position, her dream was to start a campaign of skilling youth and empowering them to solve the problem of unemployment. She shares her story with Gertrude Mutyaba.

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.
