HIV Positive contestant Horcelie Sinda Wa Mbongo has been crowned Miss Congo 2017. The Miss Congo event which took place in Statford London saw 9 contestants battling it out to win the crown and Horcelie just blew everyone away with her inspirational story and courage.
The 22 year old Congolese born beauty is using her newly crowned title to raise awareness of the virus after discovering she was HIV Positive at the age of 11. She expressed ‘I’m happy I’ve won at least something in my life. My story has warmed people’s hearts and that’s the most important thing.’
We are already in love with this brave inspirational woman who plans to go back to the DRC to campaign on HIV and AIDS and help others confront the disease.
