Afghan Beauty Queen Makes History

History was made recently when Hammasa Kohistani became the first Muslim beauty pageant contestant to be crowned Miss England. Kohistani was born to Afghan parents in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, and speaks six languages. In the wake of her success, she has been offered a role in an upcoming Bollywood movie and will move on to represent England in the Miss World Championships in China. "I'm making history and I'm very happy. Hopefully I won't be the last," she said upon receiving her crown.
