Inspirational! Meet The Former Poultry Farmer Who Became Miss Uganda

This may be one of the most inspirational stories you will read this today. Whatever you do well will definitely take you to greater heights.

Meet Leah Kalanguka, a former mushroom and poultry farmer who was crowned Miss Uganda following a major rebranding of the annual beauty pageant, which was designed to promote agriculture in the east African nation.

The 23-year-old beauty queen beat off 19 other finalists after a competition that saw the glamour of the catwalk ditched for an army-sponsored boot camp on a farm, where contestants had to milk cows and work with goats and sheep.

This event took place in 2014. It was not the usual western-style pageant with flashy dance-steps. It was basically agro-based, which saw contestants milking cows and working with goats and sheep.

Miss Kalanguka won that event and became a queen from the farm. This is a major way to boost agriculture in any nation. Miss Kalanguka’s achievement is a source of inspiration to many young girls who would now see agriculture with dignity and delve into it.
