Susan Anyango, a beautiful and charming nineteen year old, is anything but an ordinary teenager. It seems she is destiny’s favorite child right now. From winning the Miss NESTEA® contest from Githurai to winning the NESTEA® Miss World Kenya 2011 title, she has had lady luck smile on her throughout.
Susan’s journey from Githurai to London, where the current Miss World 2011 will be crowned, started the day Nestea announced sponsorship of the Miss World Kenya 2011 pageant and along with it a once in a lifetime opportunity for few girls from less privileged backgrounds to fulfill their dreams.
Susan took the opportunity that Nestlé presented when it launched its ksh 5 sachet of Nestea in the Kenyan market and as part of their strategy of connecting with consumers directly announced the tie up with Miss World Kenya 2011.
Guenter Spiess, Business Executive Manager - Coffee & Beverages for Nestlé Equatorial African Region explains, “At Nestlé we are always looking to connect with our consumers and for NESTEA® we know this will be a great opportunity to connect at the grassroots level.”
Nestea held 13 Miss Nestea contests during their Roadshows, all across the country in Kibera, Kayole, Kwangware, Githurai, Thika, Machakos, Mombasa, Narok, Nakuru, Eldoret, Kisumu and Kisii, and Susan won the Miss Nestea contest from Githurai. She was then selected as one of the four girls to enter the modeling Academy for 5 weeks and then went on to beat 33 other contestants from all over the country to be crowned Nestea Miss World Kenya 2011.
Susan is the youngest of the three in her family and she lost both her parents at a very early age. She lost her dad to liver complications at age 5 and her mum to leukemia at 12. The circumstances were tough but Susan never gave up hope and Nestea provided her the opportunity to live her dream.
From the entire team here in Nestea we wish Susan the very best for the Miss World contest in London and we hope she brings the crown home!
