My Name is Olive Mbulamnosha. I am asking for your support of my participation in the Miss Intercontinental USA Pageant that will be held in Bethesda, Maryland July, 21-25. I must raise a total of $3500 dollars to cover travel, lodging, fees, wardrobe and miscellaneous expenses.
A little about me. I was honored to be selected Miss Idaho Intercontinental this year. I was born in The Democratic Republic of Congo. My family came to the United States as refugees when I was 15. Idaho has been a great blessingto us. My dad, mom, two brothers and 3 sisters are truly blessed to be here in Idaho. I learned to speakEnglish quickly, graduated from high school and am currently in my Junior year, studying Health Sciences at Boise State University. Attending the university has been made possible, foremost by the grace of God, the king and loving support of my family and the encouragement and support of friends and instructors.
Serving as Miss Idaho Intercontinental is a great privilege. Representing the beautiful state of Idaho is an amazing opportunity to advocate for those whose voice is not heard; those who suffer injustice through bullying and abuse. I am committed to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves in our local communities, states and around the world.
This competition has provided me a pathway to partnering with community organizations; volunteering, developing skills and relationships, offering support to programs, building awareness of the community and increasing my level of confidence in new and diverse environments. My thanks to the following who have allowed me to work with them: St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital, Women and Children’s Alliance, Boise State University, Ronald McDonald House, the VA Hospital and more…
I hope you will help me get to the Miss Intercontinental USA Pageant this July in just 3 weeks. Can’t do it withoutyou! Thank you for considering my request.
