New York – After the Moroccan-Finish Sarah Chafak won the title of Miss Finland, another Moroccan comes to confirm once again that Moroccan women are among the most beautiful on earth. Last February, Iman Oubou, a 23 year-old Moroccan-born woman won the title of Miss Colorado, the US State where she currently resides.
Iman Oubou expressed her content to be elected Miss Colorado and emphasized that she will strive to win the title of Miss US international, thus, honoring Moroccan women in general, and the Moroccan community in the United States, in particular. “I am happy and proud to be part of this adventure. I will bring that miss United States International title back home,” Iman told Morocco World News. “I have been preparing very hard and I am positive it will work out for the best,” she added.
Iman will represent the state of Colorado in the Miss United States International pageant to be held in Orlando, Florida next June.
Iman pursued her studies at Colorado State University where she obtained a Bachelors of Science in Biochemistry/Molecular Biology in May 2011. After her graduation, she was chosen out of 700 applicants to intern with a biomedical company in Munich, Germany. After spending three months working in Germany, she was accepted in both Queen Mary School of London and at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus to start a Master’s of Science in Biomedical Engineering.
She is currently completing a Masters in biomedical engineering, as well as a certificate in bio-innovation entrepreneurship at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus in Colorado. Iman is also the Co-president of the students for global health organization, which allowed her to go on her recent medical mission to Africa.
In addition to her studies, Iman is involved with international medical missions and local medical centers in Colorado. After completing a medical mission to East Africa where she assisted in 26 surgeries, Iman plans on carrying out a medical mission to Morocco in May 2013.
Stemming from her humanitarian leanings, Miss Colorado hopes to establish a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children suffering from cancer.
Like many Moroccans, what distinguished Iman from other contestants in Colorado is the fact that she speaks several languages, including Arabic, English, Spanish and French.
Her exquisite beauty along with her high qualifications will enable her to be a serious candidate for the title of Miss United States, thus, becoming the second woman from the MENA region to win the title in a three year spam, after the Lebanese-born Rima Fakih won the prize in 2010.
