Hello to you all. My name is Nadia, and I am the only contestant representing Tanzania, I am a humble articulate young woman. I am appreciative to be competing for the title of Miss East Africa UK 2007.

I am competing for the title of Miss East Africa UK because I would like to make a difference in supporting under privileged children. I would be honoured to assist those who are unfortunate back in Africa especially those who are not able to access good health care, sanitation and other services that have been widely available to me throughout my development as a woman. If I am crowned Miss East Africa UK I hope to become a successful model and raise awareness of poverty and the potential that is available in East Africa. I hope to encourage awareness that a world should be one which respects and values each child, a world which listens to children and learns, a world where all children have hope and opportunities. I would like to work towards ensuring that children have adequate food, shelter, healthcare and education, and are free from violence, abuse and exploitation.

As long as there are children in need, we all can find innovative ways to help them survive and thrive. I realise you cannot help everyone but we can use what is available to improve a few lives. I really want to win so that I can have the opportunity to do charity work with various organisations so please vote for Nadia as your Miss East Africa UK 2007.

My biggest inspirations in life without a doubt has got yo be my parents. They are both successful in their own right My mother is an Accounts Director and my father has his own Accounting Business in Tanzania which is thriving amongst other projects. Both of my parents are very business minded and very successful in their own rights My parents have worked hard to provide a good foundation for their childrens. I have one older sister and one younger sister. I have one nephew who is so adorable... I love him to bits. He is two years old.

I have not been involved in voluntary work before however I do donate funds to Cancer Research as this Charity is one that is dear to my heart. My late aunty Jacinta passed away due to the effects of Cancer. I also donate to Children in Need and to the British Heart Foundation every month.

I enjoy reading. The last novel that I was so engrossed in was called" Ugly" by Constance Briscoe.When I started reading this book I didn't realise this was a true life portrayal, when I did, I was shocked, disgusted & fascinated all at once. It provoked such a range of emotions in me that I didn't know whether I was coming or going. Her style of writing is direct, simple, not simplistic, and the story is evocative. The imagery is vivid and I wonder what impact re-living some of those situations must have had on her. I recommended this book to many of my friends and colleagues to which most of them found it to be a hard read, surprisingly I didn't, I wanted to know everything. Constance writes in a very factual unbiased way which helps! Her story is inspiring and proves that with determination you can overcome or rather fight against all horrors but she doesn't paint herself as some sort of super success story, nor condemn those who aren't able to conquer their past horrors, and there's even some humerous bits. I was shocked by the casual violence and disgusted and angered by the way her mother treated her. It brought tears to my eyes and made me so angry all at the same time.Reading this just makes me want to know more about the person, I'm on tenterhooks for the second book, pity it's moved from July to January '08. Saddest thing about this book is that Constance isn't the first child to suffer in this way, nor will she be the last.
