An Igbo Pamela Uba Makes History As The First Black Woman To Be Crowned Miss Ireland

Miss Ireland is Pamela Uba, a 26-year-old medical scientist. On Sunday, she was awarded the title at a ceremony held at Lakeside Manor in Co Cavan. Pamela is the first black lady to win the prestigious title of Miss Ireland since it began in 1947.

“It means a great deal to me. I’m so glad I can show girls that race isn’t a barrier to success and that no matter where you come from, the world is your oyster.” In an interview, Pamela stated.

Pamela is the oldest of six children in her family. When she was seven years old, she and her family moved to Ireland as asylum seekers from Johannesburg, South Africa. They spent ten years in direct provision after arriving in Ireland.

“People shouldn’t be forced to stay still for years and years,” she said of the direct provision method. I was in there for ten years, unsure of what was going on or when my life would begin. It is necessary for people to be able to live their lives. I hope Ireland continues to assist people, but the direct-provision system needs to be reconsidered, if not eliminated.”

Pamela always wanted to study something that would help people when she was younger. She was also an avid football player and a sports and education enthusiast. She stated that school and athletics provided her with an escape from the difficulties of life under the direct provision.

Pamela graduated from Galway University with a degree in medical science. She is also awaiting the findings of her clinical chemistry master’s thesis from Trinity College Dublin.

Career

Pamela is a part-time model and a medical scientist. She was also crowned Miss Galway last year, in addition to Miss Ireland.

Pamela dazzled the world last year as a frontline worker during the peak of the Coronavirus pandemic. Pamela was working at Galway University Hospital at the time when she was involved in monitoring the inflammatory process in Covid-19 patients.

Plans for the Future

Pamela will compete in the 70th Miss World pageant, which will be held in Puerto Rico in December. She intends to use her new status to highlight a more diverse Ireland.
