Growing up for me was fun, full of experiences…I grew up with my parents but my dad was always travelling. I went to school not far from home, I had a wonderful upbringing I must say and a God fearing one.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU INTO CONTESTING FOR MISS IKA
I was inspired to contest for miss ika 2015 because I wanted to identify myself with my people and I wanted to be recognized among my people and also be able to help them in my own little way because I believe if we work together, we will achieve so many great things.
HAVE YOU BEEN INTO PAGEANTRY BEFORE?
No…I haven’t been into pageantry before
 THROUGH OUT YOUR DAYS IN THE CAMP, DID YOU EVER FEEL YOU WOULD BE CROWNED?
From day1 till the last day, I didn’t fully believe in myself because we had so many great contestants that I felt I were gonna compete with but along the line, I had great confidence that even though I don’t emerge the winner, I would be among the top four, and God would place me there for a reason. So I don’t have to think too much but put in my best and leave the rest for God.
HOW DID YOU FEEL DURING THE CONTEST?
I felt cold, nervous, anxious but I wasn’t scared…(smiles) before going on stage, I would do a little exercise to shake off a bit and climb the stage..off I go! I felt good as well to be among so many beautiful girls, being in a competition with them and doing what I love to do….above all, I had fun!
 WHAT YOUR REACTION WHEN YOU WERE ANNOUNCED WINNER
I almost cried out. I was shocked, I was over whelmed with joy. I was so thankful and grateful to God. I felt like taking a pause and asking myself if it was true , if it was real life which I di…. Honestly I had several things going through my head but above all I was so so happy…(laughs)
SINCE YOU EMERGED THE WINNER, HOW HAS YOUR LIFE BEEN?
Since I became miss ika, life has given me a reason to be hopeful and thankful to God and all who supported my progress. It has made me see life in a better way and its about to change me for the better.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR RELATIONSHIP
(smiles endlessly) Sincerely, I am in a serious relationship with my other half but I would prefer to leave that for now.
WORDS FOR YOUR FAN
Believ in God, because he is the author and the finisher of our faith.
