Fatmata Sowa has become the first to be crowned Miss Eco Sierra Leone. She is 23 years old, and she was born in the city of Bo.
She is also a college student who is currently awaiting graduation with BSC in Applied Accounting at the Institute of Public Administration and Management (IPAM) University of Sierra Leone.
Fatama will be competing in Miss Eco International in Egypt coming 2022. She is currently working on a platform based on recycling education and practice. She believes that recycling is an important topic that should be thought in schools most especially to school aged children. Educating the young generation about recycling will help the future of our planet/environment, because as the saying goes, “children are the future of tomorrow.” Miss Sowa and the MEISL team are planning to conduct a method of working with schools by placing recycling bin in different institutes, educate students about what goes in each bin, and why recycling is important for the sustainability of our environment. Students and youths will be the best to spread such message to. That is because, they are capable of spreading the word to their friends, families, and others. Having such a project will help create jobs for the unemployed, by using the recycled or waste items and reuse them to make different products needed for daily functions.
She wishes to meet with the First Lady of Sierra Leone and share some of her plans and goals and eventually get the necessary support on her project.
Fatmata Sowa is an epitome of confidence and determination; believing that hard work and dedication will aid in her path to success. She is the exact definition of beauty with brain.
Her belief in the immense opportunities of life through the attainment of a very good education goes deeply intact with her passion for modeling – a talent she had discovered since her teenage years. Her passion for pageantry started in 2015 of which she won the first pageant she ever competed in.
