Meet Yityish Aynaw- FIRST ever Ethiopian-born Miss Israel!

Meet 21 year old beauty Yityish Aynaw! She just made history as the first ever Ethiopian born Miss Israel. WOW! This is huge!! Mavel Tov to her!!

Our new Miss Israel 2013 was born in Ethiopia and moved to Israel with her family when she was 12. So get this- the beauty queen has also served as an officer in the Israel Defense Forces.
She said during the competition that she hoped to go into modeling “to change attitudes to dark-skinned models. I’d love to become the first Israeli (TV) host, the Tyra Banks of Israel.”
In an interview last week she said her integration into Israeli society had been greatly eased because she had been “thrown into the deep end” in the state school system, “and I learned to swim,” rather than placed in separate Ethiopians-only classes.

I cant wait to cheer her on at Miss World this year! This is so dope!
