Miss Nigeria, Mildred Ehiguese Says She Is A Born Again Christian

The current Miss Nigeria, Mildred Ehiguese is different from the rest....

She is a born again Christian and says that wearing the crown did not negate her religious values but had instead helped her to empower women.

“I am a born-again Christian and a beauty queen. We did not have to wear bikinis because it is a non-bikini contest. The Miss Nigeria beauty contest is one that is known for its dignity. The contestants know that they are there to promote their good image and that the organisers would not make them do things that would make them damage their relationship with God.

“Every pageant has a stereotype attached to it but dealing with it has to do with the way you carry yourself and the kind of things you do. If you have strong virtues and you are sure about them, then a beauty pageant would not let you do anything that is contrary to your belief,” she said.

The graduate of Psychology, Redeemer’s University, Ede, Osun State, added that while some parents might be opposed to the idea of their children contesting in a beauty pageant, it was her mother who bought her the form for the beauty pageant.

“I got into the competition after my mother heard about it and bought me the form. I wanted to leverage on the platform that Miss Nigeria would give me in order to enrich lives and empower women. My mother has never been into pageantry but she is a very ardent reader and she had read that the Miss Nigeria Beauty Pageant was a prestigious one.

“She had read about the impact that the past queens had and she wanted her daughter to do the same. Before Miss Nigeria, I had been reaching out to people and my mother figured out that I could use this platform as well. For instance, before I joined the competition, while I was serving in Ibadan, Oyo State, there was an orphanage I visited often and I sponsored some children’s education. Winning the pageant was the best day of my life because I knew that I was going to maximise the use of this platform to my benefit and do the things I want to do.

“I am a queen that works. I studied Psychology at the Redeemer’s University and served in the Psychiatric Department of the University College Hospital, Ibadan. My specialisation is in clinical psychology and I work with people with emotional disorder. The experience at UCH was similar to the one that I had at the Neuropsychiatric Hospital, Abeokuta, Ogun State.”

  4. She sounds so intelligent

  5. Commendable indeed.

  6. Do born again Christians cannot wear Bikini? Very judgmental mindset

    1. Yes. Born again Christians shouldn't wear bikini

  7. One wonders why ppl can't simply encourage an apparently intelligent young lady (that's not telling 'cucumber' stories) in her bid to do right without coming at her with their regular 'judgement' judging. When references to Christianity begin to give a person prickly heat, then time has come for self evaluation. Enough said.
