Contestants of the 2017 Exquisite Face of Universe pageant have paid a courtesy call on the First Lady Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo at her Ridge office as part of their activities for this year’s pageant.
The group of 35 ladies will be participating in the final of this year’s pageant organized by First Loyal Event Limited on September 16 at the National theatre under the theme “Eat Ghana, Feel Ghana, Wear Ghana, Love Ghana.”
Addressing the queens, the First Lady urged them to take the opportunity to learn more about Ghana and its people, adding they should sell the country to the outside world to attract more investors.
She also commended the organizers for the event aimed at promoting the sustainable development goals of the United Nations.
Mrs. Akufo-Addo encouraged the queens to work hard and be positive role models for the coming generation as well as work to improve the lives of women and children. She wished them well in the contest, noting that irrespective of who is crowned, all of them are winners and should still play a role to ensure goals for the pageant are achieved.
Exquisite Face of the Universe is an innovative world pageant that brings beauty queens between the ages of 18 and 27 years with strong passion for benevolence and development from around the world to compete for an ambassadorial crown.
The winner of the crown becomes the global ambassador who promotes the Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) with main attention on 4 out of the 17 Goals.
