Mr. and Miss University Kenya (MMUK) is one of the most prestigious beauty pageants in Kenya that recognizes and appreciates beauty, talent and leadership in young university students. The annual contest is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year with a launch set to take place mid next month and the annual national coronation night planned for September 2023. Winners from the national Kenyan contest go ahead to compete in the African continental pageant and then head on to the global one once they qualify.
This year, Karakana Initiative is a strategic partner in the Mr. and Miss University Kenya pageant (MMUK), with a keen interest in adding to the efforts to grow pageantry, modeling and talent careers among the youth in Kenya. In fact, Karakana has set aside the month of April to have a number of activities in partnership with MMUK to showcase, mentor, guide and teach young people interested in modeling, pageantry and related careers.
