Of her experience, she said she was surprised that no one knew about Namibia and she was glad to be an ambassador spreading the word about her home country. She added that she was equally aware of carrying the mantle not only for Namibia, but also for Africa.

“To be the only African country to participate, was an absolute privilege”, said Grace.

Of her experience, she noted that “Kyrgyzstan’s people are very welcoming and made us feel at home. I met beautiful ladies from more than 20 countries, who spoke different languages and come from different cultures.”
