Beating 5000 ladies to emerge Miss North Central | See Pictures of Ujah Patience in her ‘Regalia’
Ujah Patience says it was a childhood dream of hers to become a beauty queen; a dream which has culminated in the young 22 year old being crowned Miss North Central. A student of Benue State University in Makurdi has been busy with charity work – visiting orphanages across Benue state and pre-work for her valentine charity event in Benue state.
In 2013 however, Ujah Patience decided to participate in a competition called ‘Models of a New Generation.’ She won several titles at that competition, including ‘Body Beautiful’ and went on to contest at Miss North Central where she emerged winner.
She said recently: ”There are strong stereotypes about pageant girls … but we’re just as career-driven as other women, and want to achieve. For instance, I am writing a self-help book for girls and wants to one day host her own chat show – which might not happen soon. However I am looking at affecting alot more lives with my new charity outlook even after my reign as Miss North Central.”
