I'm 27 and studying my Bachelors in Social Sciences and Liberal Arts.

OurQueens asked Yolanda Grace Yona three questions...

How do you view yourself progressing after being crowned? What are the next steps you have mapped out?

If I am crowned Miss Africa USA, I intend to continue helping my fellow contestants to make each and every one of their platforms a success, I also intend on starting an organization where Africans living in the United States can obtain assistance with problems they are facing in the country. I would lastly start a mentorship program were successful Africans in the United States can mentor aspiring young Africans in Africa.

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

I took part in Miss Africa USA because it gave me a voice to speak about issues that I am passionate about. I am very passionate about food security in my country Zimbabwe. I managed to start an organization called Dorcas Federation for young farmers in Zimbabwe. The aim of the organization is to get young farmers training on how to farm sustainably as well as inputs to start farming as a business. I was successful in starting different farming clubs in Rusape, Zimbabwe. I was also appointed ambassador of the Young Farmers Association by the Minister of Youth and Culture in Zimbabwe. This will help me gain favorable access to organizations worldwide that can assist farmers in Zimbabwe.

There is no way to prepare for pageant questions but I intend to let my heart speak for me when the time comes.
