Florence Lumumba Living Her Miss Congo Dream...

Florence Lumumba









We had the opportunity to sit with one of the constant of this year Miss Congo/SA Pageant, Florence Lumumba, a girl who says to have be dreaming of being Miss Congo since her young age... An "outgoing, down to earth, and easy going character" as she describe herself. It's not everyday that you'll meet a beauty pageant who is as calm and well-composed as her.


Living her childhood dream, Florence only wish is to be crowned MISS CONGO SA 2014. And she's ready to harder than ever to make that possible.



COULD YOU TELL US ABIT MORE ABOUT YOURSELF?

Florance is an outgoing, down to earth, easy going character but I need to analyze you before I can get comfortable enough to reveal my outgoing personality, moreover I do have a very nerdy side to me which comes out here and there.

IF YOU WERE NOT TO WIN WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

I’d continue with my day to day life which is education and secular work however I’d still seek different pathways that would lead me towards the modeling industry.

WHAT MAKES ME A STAR?

I don’t think I’m a star lol


WHAT DO YOU ADMIRE ABOUT THE CURRENT MISS CONGO SA?

She looks like she has a quiet demeanor, she looks subtle yet powerful.Theres a lot of people that demand power through their words but she seems like someone that would demand attention without having to say a word and THAT I admire.




WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE A CHILD?

As cliché as it might sound I’d encourage the child to pursue their dreams and not let anyone stop them from it, a child should know who they are, what they stand for and never compare their journey with someone elses.I personally run my journey at my own pace. The energy it takes to look back and see how far people are coming from behind takes my personal vision away from me. So the child should always put their best foot forward and aim to achieve what they want to achieve.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO WIN MISS CONGO SA 2014?

I’ve always wanted this since I was a little child, not only for the glitz and glamour part but to show the society what Florance is capable of, I’ve dreamt of it, even faked it while growing up lol and even though I have put it off, deep down I know that I can master and bring something new and fresh in this industry.




WHEN LAST DID YOU FAIL?

Failure is not my portion however we are humans and we all fail. I last failed trying to register at wits to pursue a career in medicine and study Pharmacy as hard as it was I had to look for a plan B.

Most definitely my sister, she believes in me more than I believe in myself.

HAVE YOU COMPETED IN PAGEANTS BEFORE?

No I haven’t this is definitely an experience for me and I’m absolutely loving every moment.

HOW DO YOU CHEER UP A FRIEND?

When speaking to my friends that are down I don’t necessarily think of cheering them up lol it just comes out of me, and eventually they cheer up.

DESCRIBE YOUR BEST FRIEND?

I always surround myself with dedicated and grounded girls - my two close friends are career driven ,yet I have one that’s extremely crazy, fun and extremely honest lol then I have one that’s more subtle, calm career driven and loving .I always go to her when I need direction, I love them both the same way they are absolutely amazing.

WHAT WOULD YOU GIVE UP TO WIN THIS TITLE?

This is a big one for me and if I have to sacrifice my job I would.

IS HISTORY MORE IMPORTANT THAN SCIENCE?

No, my reason for that is because science has a lot of solutions like new cures for illnesses,testing of new products whether it will be harmful for human skin and so forth, history on the other hand mainly focuses on the past.

WHAT MAKES YOU NERVOUS?

LOL there’s just too much to mention

WHAT DO YOU SEE WHEN YOU LOOK IN THE MIRROR?

I see someone who’s hungry for success, I see someone that doesn’t want history to repeat itself, I see a young lady with big dreams.

I joined it to empower young girls, growing up a lot of stereotype was passed out about how I looked, I am here to share my story to uplift them and make them think beyond what they hear, most importantly to add as a contributing factor to our community whether its community work dealing with young children or simply speaking publicly and if that can be shown I would honestly feel like I’ve achieved my main objective.

This ties in with the previous question which is mainly to inspire and empower young girls everywhere and be amongst the ones that contributes towards the upliftments of the community.


WHAT IS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE TO YOUTHS?


It has to be education and employment. If these social economic issues can be to a certain level eradicated a lot can be done to improve our future generation.

HOW DO YOU MEASURE SUCCESS?


Success is not measured by how many digits you have in your bank account as one persons success can be another person’s starting point, success is measured by your achievements in life and how many times you have failed but still pick yourself up.
