During that time, my potential and ability to showcase my country’s beauty ranging from Flora and Fauna; mountains and other landscape attractions; cultural heritage and historical sites which define Uganda as the Pearl of Africa earned me the nomination for Miss Eco Tourism World.Mercy Adongo

Adongo adds, “living under the care of a charitable organisation (Compassion Uganda) with the support of a kind lady called Katie from Canada, all these changed my perception on how to handle situations in the day-to-day life.
