She becomes only the 3rd girl from Ethiopia to go to Miss Universe and her National Director has high hopes for her this year.The unprecedented event at the Ethiopian National Theatre was witnessed by an almost sold out crowd of over 1000 guests including diplomats, dignitaries and entertainers it was the biggest beauty pageant ever to be held in the history of Ethiopia, staff at the theatre commented that never before has the National Theatre been so packed with people to se a show, and finally cements the Miss Universe® brand and its National Director Mr Andy Abulime in the minds of the citizens of Ethiopia as the undisputed market leader for the elaborate stage shows and choreographed show that was put on. And this takes pageantry in Ethiopia to a new level
