MISS Namibia 2023, Jameela |Uiras (23), selected to represent Namibia at the 72nd Miss Universe competition revealed her national costume repre­sentative of the Oryx (Gemsbok) – for the pageant slated to take place in San Salvador, El Salvador on 18 November 2023. |Uiras departed the country on Thursday, 02 November 2023.

The Miss Universe Organization (MUO) is a global, inclusive organization that celebrates all cultures, backgrounds and religion. With this, Miss Universe Namibia chose to celebrate the Na­mibian nation with her national costume symbol­izing resilience, adaptability, and grace. The Oryx holds significance for the people of Namibia due to its cultural and ecological importance. It is fea­tured on the coat of arms of Namibia as a symbol of our country’s diverse wildlife and natural heri­tage. The Oryx is a true desert animal and adapts to any harsh climate conditions. During the COVID-19 pandemic, |Uiras went through a lot of struggles and challenges but adapted to the shifts. Besides covid-19, Namibians generally adapt to any circumstances, just like the Oryx. It serves as a reminder of the importance of wildlife conser­vation and sustainable practices, while also pro­moting cultural identity and pride. The Oryx has played a historical role in the livelihood and sur­vival of Namibians as a source of food, clothing, and materials for various purposes.

Upon landing, |Uiras has completed registra­tion, fittings and U-camp after receiving a very warm welcome into the country. With less than a month to go, the public is urged to vote for Jamee­la |Uiras to secure her spot in the semi-finals. To vote, download the Miss Universe app, and vote  for Namibia as your choice as many times as pos­sible, the first vote is free!  The NBC Board of Directors, Director General, Stanley B. Similo, management and staff pledge their full support behind |Uiras and wish her nothing but success on her international journey.
