Ajong 1.78 Ft, won the contest from the 13 other finalists who were selected from the 25 contestants from all 10 Southern Sudan States. According to one of the Judges Mr. Daniel Deng; self composition, presentation, motivational speech and Traditional culture dance were the major points where Ajong won the 9 persons panel of Judges.
This she explained is crucial for bringing Unity and reduce the tribal tension that has characterized South Sudan.
Ajong says she is going to visit all the 10 States while studying first hand problems people are facing.
“You cannot get to know well the problems someone is having unless you come closer to him/her”,Sudanese new queen explained.
A translation Student from Juba University, Khartoum, Ajong will have to forego studies this year if she is to achieve her objectives.
“I don’t think I can now manage to sit for my exams as well as fulfill my obligations as Miss Malaika”, Ajong who hails from Jonglei State explained.

Ajong says the best advice is from her father who advised her to love everyone. Her role model is her mother because of her responsibilities.
She says she will work to perfect her work such that parents can always support Miss Malaika. One of her key areas of focus will be to strive for girl’s education. Ajong says she is against bleaching because it deprives of African black beauty.
