My name is Nengi Ifeanyiukachu. I am from Imo state and I am representing Nigeria in this year’s Canada’s Miss Beauty of Africa Pageant. I am very excited and grateful for this opportunity.
I am a B.A Sociology major at The Kings University and I am going into my final year. My goal is to graduate in a year and start my own dance studio. I am very passionate about dancing and people say they can I see it in the way I perform whenever I perform. If I had the opportunity I would travel the world, see and learn about different cultures, especially their ways of dancing. I just love dancing, its my happy place. In my spare time I like to read novels, take walks, hang out with friends, or listen to some good music and just do me. Kick back and relax.
I admire the beauty and diversity in Canada so much. I mean, I grew up in Nigeria and basically everyone there is Nigerian so when I moved here I was amazed by all the beautiful people here, unique in their own way, It’s really amazing how we can all live together and appreciate each other’s differences.
It’s definitely honor to represent my country Nigeria in this pageant, and I will make my nation proud.
