While beauty pageant may be perceived by many as the game of face and physical beauty, to those of us who believe in it, this contest is actually filled with many challenges, rewards, and personal satisfaction.

It is not just about beauty.

Rather, it is about building self confidence, leadership development, and ultimately defining who you really are.

Western Province and the North Rift region for a long time have not held a beauty pageant contest, save only for the local ones organized by institutions of learning within the region.

Private business firm,   , one of the largest besides, Nakumat, Tuskys and Yako, is organizing a Mr. and Mrs. Western Kenya College Completion 2012.

Scheduled for March 17, the finale is to take place at the Shariffs’ Center Bungoma.

Some of the notable key celebrities in the Kenyan music industry scheduled to be present are: Avril, Myra, Juliani and comedian Mshamba Zebedayo of Radio Maisha.

One key thing that impressed me is how those wishing to participate are registering themselves. It is through on-line.
I believe, being a first one, I am curious to see how it will be organized and what role the beauties will be for whoever will emerge to be the winner.
