As a former titleholder, the Miss Universe experience taught me a great deal, and has shaped me to be the person I am today. It taught me how powerful I am as a woman, and through it I have become resilient and capable to do all things I put my mind to.
I am still a part of Miss Universe, and it is a part of who I am. As they say, “once a queen always a queen”; In the eyes of many you are, and will always be, a queen and treated as a representative of your country. I feel very passionate about, and responsible for building and maintaining the reputation of the Miss Universe Ghana pageant. I am also extremely motivated to offer the same opportunities that I was given to other young Ghanaian women.
