Question Time With Awien
What is the best app you’ve used in the last year?
Pandora, the music app.
What is your favourite fashion website?
What item of makeup could you not live without?

What is your most memorable encounter?
Having followed the former Miss World South Sudan for the past year, not knowing that she would be the one to place the crown on the winner in person, I was so full of emotion of finally meeting her as I was crowned.
My favourite traditional food is Mula Combo with Assida, and I also love Pizza.
What annoys you most about the world you live in?
People’s misjudgement of others, either because they choose to or because they don’t know.
