You Done Good Girl!: Miss Angola Crowned 2011 Miss Universe

It's been a long time since I have watched a beauty competition.  I lived for them when I was a little girl.  My mom would back teacakes (what yall know about some southern teacakes?) and I would watch the competition while trying to walk like the contestants.  However with age and my own opinions on our society's perceptions on beauty, I have become disinterested in pageants.  This is why I am late on posting that Miss Angola was crowned 2011 Miss Universe last night.  I simply wasn't checking for the pageant this year.  I am so happy to know that Miss Angola won not only because she is from Africa but because she had this to say:

"As Miss Angola I've already done a lot to help my people. "I've worked with various social causes. I work with poor kids, I work in the fight against HIV. I work to protect the elderly and I have to do everything that my country needs."I think now as Miss Universe I will be able to do much more."

Isn't that what having a large platform is all about, doing much more for people? I love her outlook on life.  For more on Miss Angola, read here.
