(Yolanda Makle, 2011 Ms. Galaxy Photogenic Winner)
More than just a pretty face, this engineer &; businesswoman is a proud alum of the University of North Carolina and President of Yolanda Makle Photography!!! Perhaps you’re now thinking, “I’ve seen her somewhere before. No, not at an appearance”. Well you’re absolutely right. In the summer of 2009, Yolanda beat a bevy of contestants, ultimately two other finalists, for the job of the Washington Nationals In-Game Co-Host!!!
Despite all her titles and placements, Yolanda’s most notable contribution to the industry was the founding of the Ethnic World Pageant System in 2005. Her vision for establishing the pageant was “to give ALL women of color the opportunity to help educate the world on cultural diversity“. With all that Yolanda has done through her time in pageantry and considering her very first Ethnic World teen queen has gone on to become Miss America her vision was dead on and has moved beyond women of color.
