MARY Mulenga and Kennedy Malasha, both 20 years of age are the newly crowned first ever Mr and Miss Sugo 2012, organised by Zambia's top makeup artiste Bwalya Nawa.
Mary Mulenga was a proud winner of a six month fully paid job contract with Mac recruitment and may end up landing an extension depending on how she performs in the given six months.
Explaining her winning formula, Mary could only say: "I did not mind or look at who was competing with me, I could only see
myself winning and I just did... no matter how rocky my path may be, I have made it a point in my life that nothing should block my progress that leads to my life goals," she goes on to say:
"I am not just a model for the face and fame; I have to be a model with brains to help shape the destiny of our nation, and be an example to other youths"
As for her counterpart Kennedy who walked away with a scholarship to Cavendish University to study Business Administration, he says self confidence way the key to his success.
Babbling with confidence and joy, Kennedy says his self esteem and confidence levels have gone high and that he is proud for the achievement which he describes as one that has come at a very right time.
