Another beauty, Andella Chileshe Mathews, who is also the reigning Miss Zambia UK, is nominated for the “Inspiration Award”. One of Andella’s notable appearances is at Miss Universe Contest, where she represented Zambia. The world class model is also running a campaign to motivate the Zambian Diaspora to actively and positively contribute to their home country.
