More voting to be done...

...yes, while there are still "questions" about the highly-contested results of the Joz-thong poll and the recent Taiwanese elections, I'd like you to vote on an official poll which will make a real difference to a friend of jozjozjoz.com...

A we heard from our friend, sharky the kid (who, by the way, will soon also be known as the official jozjozjoz moving coordinator™), Sonya Nimri was selected out of 3,000 would-be divas who submitted a 1 minute video and an essay in hopes having their own segment on the Today Show. Sonya, incidentally, is also sharky's co-worker and friend...

Therefore, I officially throw my endorsement behind Sonya Nimri for Today's Domestic Diva!

If you're not convinced to vote for Sonya just because *I* said you should, then you need only to visit Sonya Nimri's official website: dumpsterdiva.com for some great examples of her work. (It is also where I "borrowed" her picture from, since the one on the MSNBC website is so hard to see.)

The voting page is accessible via this link.

Taken from the Today Show's website:

DIVA NO. 2 Sonya Nimri

Sonya is a 27-year-old assistant program manager for the UCLA Anderson school. She helps organize a 72-member class of executives who are returning to school to get their MBA -- coordinating class schedules, catering, parties and overseas trips for the student executives.

Sonya's "diva" philosophy is to reinvent the ordinary into something extraordinary. She says she’s the "MacGyver" of creative crafting and interior design and describes her style as "bohemian chic."

Sonya comes from a diverse background with roots in Thailand and Jordan which influence her eclectic, artistic designs.
