It is one thing to win national pageantry as a twenty-two-year-old damsel but another to win a beauty pageant as a married mother, who has to strike a work-family balance and still sweep judges off their feet. This is the story of a two-time beauty queen, Mrs. Sylivia Namutebi Allibhai, who represented Uganda in Miss world 2011 and returned to the beauty queen world in 2021 when she was crowned Mrs. Uganda
Representing beauty with a purpose, Mrs. Allibhai stretches her generosity and compassion to help less privileged women and children through her organization, Smile with Sly. She also is the Director of the Talent Africa Foundation where oversees several corporate social responsibility activities in Uganda. Over the years, she has worked with different partners to support orphanages, special needs homes, and single mothers.
Sylvia also founded the Mrs. Uganda Mentorship program that focuses on the development of independent young women entrepreneurs. The program targets young women and mothers who are skilled and empowered in various fields to ensure they have sustainable income-generating projects in a bid to reduce gender-based violence among other effects of abstract poverty.
As a health champion, Sylvia also took part as a brand ambassador in this year’s World Heart Month initiative along with other celebrities including Patrick Salvado and Lydia Jazmine who pledged to continuously influence a healthy lifestyle to reduce the causes and effects of cardiovascular diseases in Uganda and ultimately, the world.
As a two-time beauty queen, Sylvia has also appeared as a Judge and Mentor at different Miss Uganda and Little Miss Uganda pageants, with an aim to participate in picking a queen worthy of the crown and mentor them in their Miss World journeys. This aided in the success of beauty queens such as Ms. Quiin Abenakyo, who was crowned Miss World Africa 2018.
The mother of one and wife to Talent Africa Group CEO, Aly Allibhai, Mrs. Sylvia Namutebi Allibhai will represent Uganda in the upcoming Mrs. World pageant at the Westgate Resort, Las Vegas Resort in the State of Nevada, the USA where she will be competing against more than a hundred of other beauty queens from around the world.
She is currently working with some of the best fitness instructors in the country at the Kampala Sheraton Hotel Fitness Centre to ensure she’s physically and mentally ready to raise Uganda’s flag to the top.
