Miss Ethiopia crowned South Australia’s Miss Africa

Beza Mickan-White, 20, who is originally from Ethiopia, was crowned Miss Africa at the Italian Centre in Adelaide on Saturday 14th December.

Gracefully accepting her crown, together with a Tanya Powell modelling course and a cheque for $500, Beza thanked the event organisers, the judges and the audience, and said she thought the event was excellent to show off the beauty of young African girls in Adelaide. She hoped the event would  give girls, especially those interested in modelling, something to aspire to each year.

According to Faith Abio who came third in the contest, it was a fun experience, and something she would try again.

The event was again very well supported, and Charles Onzi spoke for many when he said “It’s good for us to show ourselves to the wider community …. to me all the girls are winners”

SALT Magazine wishes Beza all the very best in following her modelling ambitions.
