  • What inspires you?

LS-D: Charity: There are a lot of people who need help in our world and there are a lot of people out there doing their very best to give it to them. Every time I see someone working hard to create change or make life better for people I am inspired and honored to be part of the things that I can be.

Perseverance: Life is not easy; every one of us has our stories. It knocks us down and drives us backwards. But I don’t allow obstacles decide for me. People who pick it back up and move forward towards their dreams and goals – inspired me.

Lastly is Leadership: Great leaders bring something to the table that you sometimes can’t put your finger on. Their passion and trust and respect and ability to bring people together and get them to work towards a common goal is amazing. And that’s me!

  • Describe Your Life’s Purpose?

I have always felt that my purpose is to take care of others. Now I have the opportunity to do that every day with passion by giving back to society.

What was your Biggest Obstacles?  Was losing my dad the same week I was to write national exam. I had given in my all for a positive result, because if my father was alive he who have been so proud to see his last baby girl graduating from high school with flying colors.

  • How Do You Handle Obstacles?

I handle obstacles pushing and adjusting. And by not making failure an option.

  • Was There A Time You Wanted to Give Up?

Yes on too many life occasions, but I was too afraid that I might miss out on something great. Self-preservation is a powerful thing to overcome, anyways.

  • What Does Moral obligation mean to you?

As a faithful Christian, I would say a moral obligation is one of those good acts or choices we are called to make through our deepest beliefs, whether those beliefs are based on faith (in God), culture, or even natural law.

  • After winning ‘Miss Tourism Liberia 2019/20’ tell us about your journey, and how has it impacted your life?

My journey so far has been really tough. But I believe to every success there’s a success story to tell. I am using my platform to inspire many girls out there if i can do it then they can too. And encouraging  them to also be a role model to the younger generation. Currently I’m using platform to start up an initiative for what i am passionate about and that is protecting the girl child mentally, physically and emotionally

  • After you reign, are you planning on competing in additional pageants?

Yes I’m aspiring to become the first ever Miss Ultra Continental winner to come from a 3rd war country like my country Liberia. And to also emerge as The Next  Miss Liberia.

  • I know you have a organization which gives back. Why do you feel it’s important to give back to the community, and in what way does your organization give back?

Giving back to the place you call home helps to unite the community and bridge some of the social, economic and political gaps. As part of my service to the community, I volunteer to teach adolescent girls the act of modelling. In this, they also learn personal care, public speaking skills, organizational skills, and time management. I also support the community soccer team financially and morally.

I work with the Destiny Recovery Program as the Goodwill ambassador to rehabilitate and reintegrate youths that are victims of substance abuse, and homelessness…

  • If you could change anything about your life, what will it be?

Changing my friends.  Doesn’t mean discarding my current friends. No, what I mean here is Finding close friends who can encourage, equip, and challenge me to move to the next level. If my friends currently do not meet this criterion, I find new friends who do. Interact with them and you are more likely to come out as champions in life. I do believe winners breed winners.

  • Why should tourist come and visit the motherland, Liberia?

Because my country Liberia  has Beautiful or intriguing scenes in nature, including geology and wildlife, Fun things to do outdoors, Places to get to know local history and culture, Chances to see and interact with local arts, Festivals and events that celebrate local history, culture, harvest time, foods,  or music. Built attractions, such as monuments, amusement parks, zoos, and Local businesses and retail stores where visitors can shop or be pampered.my country also has tasty cuisines and most of all my mother land is a sweet land of liberty.

Is there anything we haven’t asked that you would like the world to know about you? I’d like to develop myself professionally by forming a modeling agency to help develop and uncover hidden talents of girls who aspired to be like me.. Also I’m working on a documentary about the year the free slaves return to Liberia and how our history, culture, traditions and beliefs started. Thank you 🙏
