Iheoma Nnadi: I Knew I Was Going to Win MBGN 2014



MBGN 2014 Iheoma Nnadi on BellaNaija - July - 2014 - BellaNaija009
In her first interview since winning the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria coveted title for 2014, Iheoma Nnadi speaks on he journey leading up to the finale, the crowning moment, taking on a new role and school.

The 19-year-old who is a model in South Africa is also putting her academics on hold. Did she think she was going to win? Iheoma says yes.

Read excerpts;
On if she knew she would win: “Of course, yes. I mean, you buying a form means you are ready to become MBGN. I always knew I would be a beauty queen. Years back, the password to all my accounts had been forevermissworld.”

On her experience at camp: “We had to bond. The girls became sisters. You wake in the morning, you meet the same girls with whom you do practically everything. While in camp, you argue, you make up. We had so many great moments.”

On what she is studying in South Africa: “Business Administration. I was studying via correspondent. I was in the process of transferring to the University of Johannesburg when I came back to Nigeria and picked the form. I did my interviews before coming back.”

On if her new role will make her stop school: “Definitely. The South African academic calendar starts next year (January). So, I have to focus on MBGN for now”

On her pet project during tenure: “I’ll help stop child trafficking and child abuse. We have to work with agencies invited in this area to eliminate the menace. We need to work with agencies involved in this area to keep children children off the street and free them from forced labour.

I will also organize seminars to mentor young girls, a kind of motivational programme aimed at mentoring them.”

    LOL…she knew she was going to win? This invariably means @jegzy’s rant on twitter (Miss Ebonyi) that they knew Miss Akwa Ibom was going to win from the prejuding camp has some elements of truth in it. She is pretty though.

    You knew you were gonna win?! Wow! And you appeared in tears and utter surprise! Anyways, congratulations are in other, even though the headline of this post makes you come off as an inmodest queen; I’m sure your remarks were borne out of confidence. Please, as a queen do well to choose your words wisely. And yes BN! Now, I agree with you guys, you REALLY need an EDITORIAL ASSISTANT!

    Why won’t babes BLEACH? We have more and more MBGN winners that are fair-skinned. Not ‘fair’ at all! Remember, AGBANI DAREGO brought home the Miss World crown because she was BLACK and beautiful. Totally African! Why must we crown Nigerian girls that remind us of white girls?

    Pardon me biko, I was really vexing… Iheoma darling, congratulations. You are really beautiful with lovely features; don’t change that, for the world, with plastic surgery o! I also love that you used your African names, not Sylvia or Isabella or Anna or something-oyinbo. Cheers, darling!
