The 2011 Miss Universe was crowned on the 12th of September in Sao Paolo, Brazil. As some of you might know I am a pageant lover and have even participated in some myself, so this is always a special treat to watch on TV. Miss Leila Lopes is from Benguela, Angola. She is only the 4th African woman to win the prestigious title and at 25 she is an advocate for the fight against HIV. She is the first Angolan woman to win Miss Universe and oh, how proud her country must be.
