Reigning Queen at the Rubby Room Fashion Show

Miss Africa Washington State Reigning Queen at the Ruby Room Fashion Show. According to queen Andile, “The Ruby Room is a nonprofit organization providing formal attire to teens in financial need across the State of Washington, enabling them to participate in high school milestone events. Teens come from across the state to receive a dress they can keep, at no charge”
What a noble cause!!!
So proud of her for always ceasing great opportunities to give back to her community.

Community matters: Reigning Queen heading in town to feed the homeless

As a reigning queen and a goodwill ambassador to our community, she is doing great in making sure she fulfills her duty as a queen. According to Queen Andile, “Growing up I have come to learn that not everyone has bread and butter like most of us do.
As I was doing my research I learnt that; the number of poor people in the suburbs increased by 80 percent between 2000 and 2011 — with much of that growth concentrated in the cities south of Seattle.
The rate outpaced the nation’s and ranked the Puget Sound region as the 23rd fastest growing for suburban poverty among the largest 100 metro areas. Why should someone else go bed on an empty stomach if you and I have a little more than we need.
May our hearts not only give when we can get something back but even when there’s no hope of ever getting a ‘thank you back’.
Because of all this, I made a decision to be the change I am looking for 👑MissAfricaWashingtonState2016 👑 AndileMpofu blessedtobless #searchyourheart❤ #givingisjoy”

undergarments and sanitary products drive for young girls in Zimbabwe

Dont Just Read, Please kindly DONATE!
A message to you from her majesty queen Andile Nobuhle Mpofu
“A pleasant day to you all! I am very pleased to announce that, I as Miss Africa Washington State have joined forces with Tariro House of Hope (THH) to help provide underwear and sanitary products for young girls. THH is a center in Epworth, Harare, Zimbabwe that takes care of orphans and vulnerable children. It helps pay for tuition, provide uniforms and basic necessities for these children. I have learnt that some young girls who have now matured into womanhood let basic necessities that every woman needs, that is, panties and pads. Knowing the life cycle of a woman, you would know that when girls reach adolescence they begin their menstrual cycle, which is beautiful thing. Now, imagine being a young girl going through your periods with one panty or for some, none. I personally cannot imagine that. Hence, I have taken this opportunity carry out an Undergarment and Toiletry Drive to help these young ladies. Toiletries with an emphasis on pads and or tampons get involved and change alive please reach out to either or the contacts on the flyer. Together we can!
