I was born in Nigeria but raised on the Northside of Chicago. I have always been a gifted and passionate writer, and scholar, my interests mainly revolving around history, math, & science. I am an aspiring actress & lawyer (possible politician). My biggest goal in life is to reach a point where I can change the world.  World Class Beauty Queens: What does women empowerment mean to you? To me, the term "women empowerment" or "female empowerment" means a few things. First, it's important to acknowledge that there is {and has been} a very toxic mentality floating around the world, that women are inferior to men. It's a mentality that has been taught to both men & women and has proven itself proven to be the basis of a majority of the world's gender-related issues. The entire idea of feminism & female empowerment stems from the idea that women or inferior to men. Female empowerment is meant to fight that. To motivate, inspire & prove to women everywhere that anything a man can do, you can do, too. That you can go into predominantly male fields, such as science & mathematics; that your opinion deserves to be heard, & that you don't need a man to dictate what are and are not capable of doing.  World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your pageant history. Well, for now, I'm new to this whole pageant thing. I believe I got started towards the end of January. Pageantry isn't something I was previously interested in but as an aspiring actress, I decided that pageantry would probably serve as a good platform for getting my name out there, and as an opportunity to give back to people who are in need. World Class Beauty Queens: To those unfamiliar with your pageant system please tell us what is it about? My pageant system is called, "Miss & Mrs. America Nation" and it is run by the wonderful and talented, Krystal Okeke. "Beauty with Inspiration" & "A Diverse Nation", are the mottos of the pageant. Miss & Mrs. America Nation is dedicated to creating a more inclusive society by highlighting people of all shapes and sizes, from all different types of backgrounds, while also being a platform to giving back to people in need. It is truly a delightful community to be apart of. World Class Beauty Queens: What are you being judged on during the competition? We have a number of different categories in the pageant, including Evening Gown, Fitness, Personal Interview, Humanitarian/Platform service, & Photography. World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your platform or what cause do you volunteer for. Going along with my pageant systems theme, I mainly advocate for those who are less privileged and who are in need. That is one of my main focuses. However, I do have a passion for being an educational voice in fields like mental health and education; to provide education and access to mental health serves for those who cannot reach it easily. I like to donate to services like that. World Class Beauty Queens: What appearances have you done with your title? Again, due to the current pandemic situation, I've only been able to go to a small handful of places, officially with my title. However, giving back to the poor is something that I have been doing for a very long time. My mother specifically has guided me in her teachings to appreciate what we have. So while I may have not walked around with a crown, I've been advocating since day 1. World Class Beauty Queens: What are some of your achievements? Due to being new to pageantry, I haven't racked up any awards in that regard, but outside of that, I am an author and poet and I made it to the semi-finals (2019-2020) of Louder Than a Bomb, the largest youth poetry service in the world. I also have been given many academic awards, such as placing 1st in the (school-wide) Scripp's Spelling Bee, 16 mathematical achievement awards, I have been selected to represent my school 12 times for the National Science Fair,  & I have received an award on my research for the Chicago Metro History Fair. I have also received awards for my work with the after-school science association, StellarGirls.  World Class Beauty Queens: What makes you stand out from all those beautiful girls? That's a good question. I think one thing is my age. I'm young and have all these big dreams, & am able to express that in such an educated manner. I am also very academically sound and have a lot to show for it, while also proving to be your average teenage girl. I think that me being someone that other normal girls my age can relate to, and possibly be inspired by, is a big part of what makes me stand out in a crowd. World Class Beauty Queens: What does it mean to you to be a Beauty Queen? I don't consider myself a "beauty queen", in the sense that you would think. Honestly, to me, there is no true definition of beauty, and it can be found in every single one of us. Society has programmed us to have a picture of what "ideal beauty" is, and I think that it's the job of young women, men, and people to change that. In 2020, being a beauty queen means fighting stereotypes, gender roles, and oppression of all forms by being unapologetically yourself, whatever that may be. To me, being a beauty queen means showing other people that you don't have to be their beautiful, to be your beautiful. World Class Beauty Queens: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel? Let me broaden that statement: "We are an inspiration to people", and to answer it, it's a wonderful feeling being apart of something so influential to other people. There is so much work that needs to be done in society, and it's a great feeling knowing that someone out there feels empowered by what I do. It really does. World Class Beauty Queens: What is your onstage strategy to win the judges over? While I haven't competed formally yet, I think that my trick would be to showcase the most unapologetic, honest, and best version of myself out there for them to see. I'm at my best when I'm doing me, and that's what I intend to do when I compete. World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for learning a better pageant walk? Personally, I think that while there are a few minor criteria to a pageant/catwalk, just do your thing. Add your own little flair to it. The catwalk is meant to display confidence and elegance, but it's also meant to show you and your amazing personality. The more confident you are in yourself and your worth, the better your catwalk will be. World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for choosing the right pageant dress? As I've said numerous times, pick a dress that makes you feel like you! You shouldn't have to mold yourself to fit 'typical pageant criteria". Be yourself! Of course, follow the rules and guidelines given by your pageant system, but also remember that you need to stay true to yourself. If the dress feels right, then pick it. World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for winning an interview? Be yourself! Showcase yourself! World Class Beauty Queens: Any modeling or acting experience? Not in modeling, but I have been in plenty of school plays, student films, and short films. I am currently interested in directing and creating my own film, too. I also am looking into certain places to see if I could get my name out there. World Class Beauty Queens: What are your plans for 2020 as a Queen? Mainly to be able to use my platform to spread awareness on a number of issues, and be able to give back to those who need it, while doing so. World Class Beauty Queens: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind? I want to be a person who changed the way society perceives itself. A stepping stone for girls, boys, and others to see that there's a lot more to you than what you see and you shouldn't be afraid to stand out in a crowd. International Director: Krystal Okeke World Class Beauty Queens Magazine would like to say thank you for this amazing interview.
