Any advice to the aspiring models that aspire to wear the crown of MBGI?
I would love to tell the aspiring models that whenever you make a decision with the goal to be the queen; no matter the difficulties you face as long as it’s not life demanding, just possess a competitive winning spirit. Always stay positive, no matter how beautiful other contestants may be; you are the Queen MBGI needs. When you face difficulties sorting out the costumes you picture on you, reach out to fashion stylist and also those who are more experienced in pageant to put you through the right path. You do not know it all. Number 1 of it all, commit the journey into the hands of GOD and watch how He makes it all easy for you. I wish the next MBGI Queen good luck.
