Scalded by her step mother nine years ago, Aisha Nabukeera has risen above odds and is now headed for the prestigious Miss Uganda crown.

Aisha managed to pass the auditions on Tuesday at Guvnor and was yesterday among the beauties selected to proceed to the Miss Uganda boot camp.

Mr Frank Gashumba, her foster father welcomed the news and said he will support Aisha and hope that the rest of the people also support and pray for her.
