Pamela Uba, Miss Ireland 2021, applied for the Miss Galway competition on the same day she received a letter telling her she had been granted Irish citizenship. “It was something that I always wanted to do,” she says of entering a pageant. “I just felt like the women were so inspiring. Particularly in 2019, I saw a lot of Black women, women of colour, holding major world titles, from Miss Universe, to Miss World, to Miss USA. That really inspired me. Luckily for me, in 2020 I became an Irish citizen. So that was the year I was like, ‘I have to do it now’,” she laughs. “It’s like a sign. The moment I got my citizenship letter, that same day I applied.”

ome years previously, she was working in a bar in Galway during college and a judge from the competition had told her she should apply. “I’ve always kind of wanted to, but knew that I couldn’t until I was an Irish citizen. So, everything works out the way it’s meant to work out. It clearly worked out very well for me in the end!”
