The closest Ghana has come to winning an international pageant was Naa Okailey Shoot placing third at the 63rd edition of the Miss World finals in 2013.

According to Abena, it has always been her dream to be a queen whiles growing up. She was bullied and teased in school so she made it a priority to gain an international platform to allow her voice to be heard as she fights for young girls who are going through what she went through.

Abena stated that the competition was very tough and what kept her going was the fact that she had to make her country proud and also wanted to prove to young girls around the world and especially Ghana that everything is possible.

    Congrats, beautiful Abena.
    Bellanaija, she is not the first Ghanaian to win an international pageant. Carranzar Naa Okailey Shooter made Ghana proud as the second runner up at the Miss World 2013 contest

    With all the ukwu ghanians have, its this tirin-gbekun they chose to represent them.

    Oh well, I guess it worked for the best. Congrats.
