Miss Grand Liberia organization took to their official social media, just hours ago, as they appointed Hajamaya Mulbah as the new Miss Grand Liberia 2021 and will now represent Liberia at Miss Grand International 2021. She replaces Goretti L. Itoka for the title.

Hajamaya took to her official social media to reveal her emotions in a post captioned, "Grateful is an understatement. I will be representing Liberia at @missgrandinternational this December in Phuket, Thailand."



Hajamaya Mulbah is a 22 years of age and a graduate of Augsburg University where she studied Computer Science and Business. Hajamaya decided to become a certified breast cancer advocate with multiple organizations after watching her mother suffer through radiation and chemotherapy. Because of this, Mulbah wishes to advocate for early detection. She has organized fundraisers, spoken to breast cancer support groups, held food/clothes drives and given presentations about the importance of early detection.



Even though the reason for replacement was not mentioned in the post by the organization, Goretti spoke about her unexpected replacement. She wrote, "Hello Everyone, Sadly, I would like to inform you all that the National Director (ND) of Miss Grand Liberia abruptly decided that I will not go for the Miss Grand International pageant for reasons completely confusing to me."



"Although, it was left on the fact that I did have a conversation with the ND a while back about Depression in the “Past” and my words were later manipulated and taken as reason for me to not go for the pageant even after in that same conversation making my statement very clear that it was in the past. Also, This abrupt decision came after my team (Manager, designer and trainer) wanted to have a meeting with the ND about plans for me and my schedule for the pageant. She (ND) was adamant that she will handle everything and didn’t want to talk to anyone regarding my participation. This is the only issue we had, and to my uttermost surprise after a few mins, she called back to give me the shocking news", she added.

Congratulations to the newly appointed queen.
