Not new to the pageantry, she held the titles of Miss Africa Texas 2016, Miss Nigeria USA 2019 as she represented Abia but didn’t win. The 25-year-old left ADEX Medical Staffing and joined LeaderStat as an intensive care nurse in 2021 and has been working there since then. Her profession which requires her to be patient, kind and compassionate towards other humans and her charming personality will make her one of the strongest contestants at this year’s Miss World competition.
