Exclusive: Former Miss World Kenya Sharon Obara on her life after the crown

Being famous comes with its own good and bad, but what is most daunting to famous people is the after experience when the cameras go off and they are no longer the limelight. The transition is never easy.

It is a path well-known to former Miss World Kenya, Sharon Obara. Born in Dagoretti, Nairobi Ms Obara always fought for what she wanted, including overcoming many hurdles in her journey to becoming a beauty queen.

She first auditioned for the Miss World Kenya competitions in 2019, but she did not make the cut. She tried again in 2021 and walked away with the crown. That was the beginning of her fame, the immense exposure and recognition that came with the title.

The psychology graduate from Kenyatta University says she possesses a unique understanding of human behaviour, enabling her to excel in her current marketing job.
