What lessons Have you derived from this whole FRW contest process:
I have learnt a lot from the start to finish of the FRW contest and even till now, I’m still learning , but to name a few, I have learnt the following
PATIENCE: anything good and great needs time and energy so there’s actually no need to be in a rush.
PERSEVERANCE: there will always be difficulties/setbacks but you shouldn’t stop until you’ve reach the end.
FOCUS: so many things needs our attention but I have learnt to give attention to the one that matters most.

In her words
Face Of Rhodies World contest has thought me not to quit in whatever I am set to do in life and how important moving forward is at every point in time.
I learnt from the tour how to be appreciative basically because every other contestants wanted to be there but couldn’t.
The crown has boosted my moral to always see myself as, not just a queen but as somebody that should be ready to contribute in other people’s lives no matter how little.
And finally as RW Ambassador, I have realized that I need to use every opportunity wisely and in order to achieve that, I am back from the 3days splendid tour not to relax but to pick up that my abandoned script, work more on it before I go out in search for sponsorship and this time I won’t relent. What I have in mind for this script is to achieve the Mexican American standard of soap opera production in Nigeria.
