In her own words:
My passion for modeling and fashion led me to my next project which is not small in every sense of it MISS AFRICA TRI-STATE Pageant. The goal of the event is to encourage and empower young African females in Tri – State on the importance of education, poise and self – confidence in one’s skin; it would be a night of fashion, talent, culture and display of African beauty.The eventwould be held at Wyndham hotel in New Jersey on the 11th of June, 2011.
We are expecting African celebrities, African leaders, and other notable personalities at the event. The State of New Jersey especially the City of Newark has been so supportive of our vision.

The proceeds from the event would be given to a deserving student at a high school in Africa as a form of scholarship/grants towards University education.
