Meet the New Miss Harlem Shake

After launching the Miss Harlem Shake contest in May and meeting over 50 wonderful Harlem ladies and worthy contenders, we finally crowned a winner on Saturday, September 13! In front of 100 guests, 8 Harlem-based judges (like Brenda Braxton and Vy Higginsen), and a group of lovely finalists, Ijeoma Eboh was given the Golden Milkshake Cup and title of Miss Harlem Shake 2014.

Ijeoma, 23 years old, is a graduate of Harvard University and is now pursuing a doctoral degree in History and Ethics of Public Health at Columbia. She’s also a blogger and founder of KlassyKinks.com, which aims to change perceptions of kinky textured hair around the world and encourage people to get back to their roots. She is a member of the Healthy Harlem team at Harlem Children’s Zone and encourages Harlem’s youth to be happier and healthier.

In addition to winning fame, $500 cash, and free burgers for a year, Ijeoma’s charity of choice (Harlem Children’s Zone) also received a $1,000 donation.
