This shouldn’t come as a surprise because Evelyn has topped the Timeless Beauty scoring from Top 25 to Top 10, and now, the Finals. Also, she was a heavy favorite during the Miss International beauty pageant for her unmistable class and finesse. Back then, she was the strongest among the African contingent and Missosology correspondents covering the Big5 pageant since Day 1 believed she was a worthy Miss International winner.

Evelyn was just perfect in every way during the Miss International finals, no wonder she bagged the Best in Swimsuit award. In a pageant that is highly criticized for not favoring African delegates, she beat the odds and made it to the Top 5. She might not have won the crown, finishing as 2nd runner-up, but Evelyn won the hearts of many for her inimitable charm and natural beauty. “Words can never be enough to describe the joy I have in my heart,” Evelyn said after the finals.

Since then, it has been a busy career for Evelyn, even busier than most of the reigning queens, too. She was nominated at the Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards, which is East Africa’s largest fashion event. She has been working with various organizations to promote entrepreneurship empowerment not just in Uganda, but around the African region, too. She was recently named as the entrepreneurial ambassador of the United Nations Association of Uganda.

Evelyn broke barriers and defied the conventional notion of beauty. She works hard, ans walks the talk. That is the essence of being a Timeless Beauty.
