Christiana’s is a Namibian citizen born of Nigerian parents and her love for family is what inspired her to enter into the world of pageantry. She has lived a privileged life and as such was pulled towards a cause that is aimed at raising awareness about the struggle of young adults. She uses her foundation, The Gure Fundation Trust, to get involved on a ground level through education and support.
She has previously participated in different pageants and as such, has amassed unique skills that make her a well-rounded and versatile worker.
She says that she’s able to tackle issues with a wide perspective and formulate effective problem resolution options. “I have also had the opportunity to work with and under people with various personality types which helps me during team and independent projects. These traits, along with my genuine desire to help others help to set me apart from my peers,” she explains.
For her, humanity is “best explained by the principle of treating others as you want to be treated. It is a maxim that is found in all religions and has proven that in a world where too many walls and not enough bridges are build, one can never grow,” she adds noting that she wants to be the catalyst that continues to build the bridges.
She believes that touching base with youth in marginalized communities will give her great insight with regard to identifying areas of their lives that need possible assistance and thereby improving their livelihoods.
She’s passionate about primary health care and will advocate for that especially for marginalized communities.
She has two projects that she’s currently running: Back-2-School Kits and The Queens Kit both of which focus on keeping the boy child and girl child in school, by providing them the essentials to stay in school.
“The prize money will assist in increasing the number of kits that can be produced as well as the amount of regions we get to meet and assist,” she declares.
