Shalom Aburu

She is an art enthusiast, fashion designer and most importantly a humanitarian. Born and raised in Kampala Uganda, Shalom always had compassion and will to help those in need. This seed was planted from an early age by her mother, a pastor, who always went an extra mile to help community members in need. Today Shalom is ambassador for an organization in Uganda, Morkiswa Community Skilling Organization, that helps youth in rural Tororo get an education. She strongly believes that education is the best key to unlock a better future for Uganda and Africa at large. In fact, in 2014 Shalom moved to the United States of America to further her education. She graduated from Pierce College Fort Steilacoom with an Associates in Science and plans to obtain a career in Mental Health Therapy through further education.
Shalom Aburu also has a strong passion for art and fashion. This passion drove her to teach herself fashion design and sewing at the age of 12 and has been polishing her craft for the last 11 years. In 2016 she was the youngest fashion designer selected to showcase her clothing collection at Bellevue Fashion Week. Today she is a self-employed fashion designer with a business, Aburu Fashion House, designing African inspired clothing and accessories.

Should she have the honor of being Miss Africa Washington State 2018, Shalom will use this opportunity to implement her platform, education of the youth in Uganda and Africa at large. She will also inspire young ladies to reach their full potential by being a good example.
