Beauty pageants and modelling happened for her when she joined Maseno University for an interior design degree course. Her love for beauty pageants has always been there as she loved watching pageants and staying up all night to watch them. “I loved dolling myself up and made my family late for church as they waited for me to get my makeup done,” said Evelyn. Evelyn even tried for the Miss Maseno title, but couldn’t win, and failed to even rank among the top finalists. So she gave up modelling and pageantry. But the beauty was surprised whrn her brother called to tell her about Miss World Kenya tryouts.

 “Out of respect for him, I heard him out but I was not enthusiastic as my experience with pageants had left a sour taste in my mouth. I, anyway, told him I would give it a thought and promptly forgot about it,” says Evelyn. It was because of her brother that she entered the pageant and was ultimately crowned as the representative to Miss World 2016. She has always said that she is prepared for the pageant and she has stood by it by her stellar performance at Miss World 2016.
