What's motivated you into pageantry?
Errrmmmm, I wouldn't really use the word motivate per se... I mostly liked the glitz and spotlight that came with pageantry contests. Being it however, I have realized that it's not actually limited to such surface activities.

The obstacle was at mostly financial and resistance from home .. however, after a little convincing here and there then I got a go-ahead and with the go-ahead came financial blessings. lol
What made your stand out amongst other contestants?

You can be honest about it, did you expect that win?
Well, I think the competition was really tough. I was very positive about what's going to happen next and I was really looking forward to it. So I can't say that I expected to win, but at the same time, I wanted to and I had given my best, that's it.

Any message to all the aspiring girls who dream of being Miss New Nigeria World?
Just believe in yourself, have faith in your capabilities and also know your own limits and work hard for it. Be a very happy person inside, because I think that is most important. We should enjoy what we do and that's what I've been doing so far and maybe that's why I am here today. If anyone wants to come and experience Miss New Nigeria or explore themselves, I think they should come without the fear of rejection and give it their best shot, irrespective of what the results are and without having any kind of negative feelings. They should just come and give their best.
