I am Ndah Gift Eno and I’m 27-years-old. I’m a graduate of Microbiology from the prestigious Abia State University in Nigeria.
Why are you competing for Miss Africa Calabar 2020?
I’m contesting for Miss Africa Calabar 2020 because the platform promotes true Africanism which is what I’ve always longed for: a chance to showcase Africa’s true reality, beauty, resources, and opportunities. We have been marginalized and looked over for such a long time and it is well overdue.
What solution would you offer for the challenges Africa is facing in terms of the COVID 19 pandemic and other health, governance, and environmental issues?
I am well aware of our inadequacies as a continent and the resulting challenges we face and that’s why as a way of proffering lasting solutions, we must improve on our education in all sectors (health, environment, governance, etc.) so that we can become solution providers as against the usual consumers that we are. Provisions should be made by the government for health and environmental practitioners to enable them to prepare against any further outbreak. Our lack of preparedness cost us a lot during the COVID 19 outburst.
What would you do with the prize money should you win and what project would you take on to impact Africa at large?
If I emerge as the winner of Miss Africa Calabar 2020, it would be a dream come true and an honor. Part of my prize money will be used to help facilitate my project of improving education in Africa and helping rape victims to know that there’s still hope and a better life. I’d partner with the organization and other bodies, including the government, to see how we can improve the quality and delivery of our educational system. I will also organize seminars for parents to know their role of proper parenting in a child’s education and a host of other awareness and enlightenment campaigns.
