Having this experience I impacted on the girls and see the result last Saturday. Whenever I take parts in pageants I take notice of what I can make better and growing up to owe my own pageant as the National Director of Miss Grand, all the experience helped me to organize this successful event” she stated.
“People did not believe in Miss Grand but we made a mark. I didn’t take part as a judge but sit behind and observe how everything went i and I can say that it is the best pageant so far. With proper sponsors I believe Miss Grand Ghana can take over all beauty pageants in Ghana and outside” she added.
