Jexenon Xenon was born in Kinshasa, DRC on February the 12, 1992. After she had graduated from High School in her natal home, Jexenon moved to the United States in 2012 to pursuit her studies. She attended Hesston College where she is more recognized for her strong energy. She always put forth promoting her Congolese and African culture. Jexenon used any opportunities such as conferences, speeches, music, dress, food, culture fair and many more social interactions to show the beauty and richness of her culture. She is the generator of the “African Night” at Hesston College to promote and share the African culture with other students, faculty and stuff.
Jexenon graduated from Hesston College in Hesston, Kansas in May 2015 with an associate degree in nursing and since then, she has been attending the Seattle Central community College in Seattle to get her Bachelor degree in Nursing. Most of Jexenon’s friends think she will fit well in theater, film or anything else related to media because of her potentials for acting, dancing, singing, songwriting, entertaining and modeling. However, Jexenon Xenon also believes that nursing fits her well also because of her passion and carrying for people. For that matter while pursuing her education in nursing, she decided to have a part-time job as a care manager.
RDC (Republic Democratic of Congo) is her natal country, and it is located in the center of Africa. It is the second largest country in Africa. In the Eastern part of Congo (Goma) has been plunged in war for about twenty years. In this “World’s worst war,” as called by the New York time and claimed the “deadliest conflict worldwide since World War II. Women and children are victims, and are treated as instruments. A lot of Women and girls are being raped and because of this matter, the Goma today is now being called the “world capital of rape”. When she realized that so many people are ignorant of this situation, Jexenon Xenon became more concerned about denouncing what has been happening in her Country. She has been trying to become the voice of those women and children who are voiceless, raped and victimized by the current situation in the Congo. In a country where democracy is not promoted, it takes strength and determination to speak up for the victims. Despite, how dangerous it is, Jexenon Xenon wants to make a difference and she believes that nothing can stop a determined woman, especially to save other women and children.
My name is Salome munyaka. I was born in the land of green highlands a land that is home for over 1000 birds and unique animals a country known for its historical sites the land from eastern Africa Kenya.
I am currently a fulltime student at highline college in Washington state am currently pursuing my AA degree in business with an emphasis in accounting. It is with great pride and honor that I accept this invitation to be a finalist in the first ever and prestigious Miss Africa Washington pageant 2016.
This pageant has created a first ever in the whole of Washington a platform for young women from across Africa and the world to pursue their dreams and raise awareness for important social and political issues, I believe for me and my country this is an opportunity to raise awareness and speak for the silenced issue of domestic violence.
Kenya has a rich heritage and culture centered on family and the man as the head of the family and usually having the last say on every matter. Unfortunately, domestic violence is not considered a problem or an issue in the society. The government terms it as family wrangles that are handled at the lowest level of judicial control. This has led many women and children to suffer in silence because there is no place to seek for help not in the community or government or family.
I was 14 years old when my mum was batted all night almost to death when she finally took the bold step and left my father, this led to her being stigmatized and reprimanded by society and family she finally had to flee Kenya because her life was put at risk by my father because she refused to return back home.
She ran to the government but they termed her complain as a family wrangle that she can solve between herself and my father and so she received no help whatsoever, moving from Kenya is what saved her life. It took her to flee from her motherland to get refuge
Now as her daughter who she had no choice but to leave behind I suffered for 7 years under my father’s wrath until I also fled for my safety. Now because I am in a safe environment I want to use this opportunity to try and reach out to other victims like me here in Washington and in future back in Kenya to empower them to save themselves and empower others like them.
I no longer want to simply be another story but rather I want to be a voice and to raise awareness in my country that domestic violence is a serious issue and needs to be tabled and measures be put because it affects the future of the country since the generation of children we are raising is at risk.
I am currently reaching out to the Kenyan community, to women and children who are victims to understand their stories and help them cope with it and seek help due to the trauma. I believe before we can go back to Kenya and seek to save others we need to heal from our own trauma and seek courage and strength, because we need to be strong for ourselves and also others to be able to work together to help not only the victims but even the abusers.
Should I have the honor to become miss Africa Washington 2016 I will use this experience in working first hand with the victims around me the women and children in Washington to start their healing process. And I wish to collaborate with the existing organizations to help deal with the trauma that comes from domestic violence. I wish take and use every opportunity during my one year of service to help each and every person that comes my way, through educating them , therapy session and empowerment workshops. I believe this will be an honor for my country as well as for me and I will not only gain a lot from this experience this will transform my countries view on domestic violence and I will create the pioneer program to change in Kenya and ultimately Africa.
