OurQueens asked Anita Ismail three questions...

What animal best describe you?

I am a graceful giraffe. Because the grace of the giraffe in human-like terms means elegance, charm, or a positive attitude and divine in origin. A giraffe represents that indispensable gift for the development, improvement and expansion of one’s character. A giraffe always lifts up its head and stretches its neck to catch the top greenest leaves. I think outside the box and look for the best out of every situation and person I come across. The Giraffe best describes me as I have all these qualities.

Is gay marriage a sin?

There are many things that we do that are a sin but I wasn't brought up to be judgmental and if gay marriage happens to be a sin, it is not my place to judge. I have a lot of nice gay friends and I have learned that sexual orientation lies in your romantic feelings and not your sexual feelings. If I was lesbian and I decided to fall in love with a woman, it is not just the sex that I enjoy with them.

Why do you believe you should be crowned as the winner of this year's Miss Africa USA?

This competition is not just about physical appearance. It is about being role model in society and I believe that I should be crowned as Miss Africa USA 2014 because I have strong values that will help to strengthen and drive me as I empower a lot of young people out there.
