Adiatu Bangura is a 21 year-old Biology major studying at Staten Island College in the US. Her education was made possible by a scholarship granted by the Miss Sierra Leone USA Organization -where she participated in and ended as runner-up. But that was before when she was still Miss Sierra Leone in New York Tri-State 2011. This year, she took a bold step by joining Miss Earth Sierra Leone and won. As a result, she will join the other ladies of Miss Earth 2012 to vie for the crown that could possibly give her a bigger voice to share her environmental platform and, in the process, help uplift the livelihood of her countrymen.
