Stacy will represent Kenya at the Miss Universe 2019 pageant scheduled to take place on 19 December in Seoul, South Korea. She will face 80 other beauties from across the world for the top honour.

“Being a model has been the best thing that has happened to me. It allows me to be someone I am not every day.

“I’m so happy! I want to thank everyone who supports my journey and above all, I want to thank God because this battle was also fought on my knees!” said Stacy after her win.

In 2017, Stacy Michuki was crowned ‘Face of Nairobi Top Teen Model’. In the following year, she was first runner-up in the ‘Few’s Next Face Africa 2018’.
