After successfully emerging winner at last year’s domestic event and subsequently going on to undertake her project work with the International Organization for Migration, where she supported the campaign against child trafficking on the coast of Kete Krachi in the Volta Region, Mimi Areme is to represent Ghana at the upcoming Miss World competition slated for October 30 in the Chinese town of Sanya.
Mimi, who will be leaving Accra on the 30th of September, will be joined by some 101 contestants selected from across the world in a battle for the highly regarded Miss World crown. The twenty year old, 5’ 8” lady from the Volta Region, has since been putting in extensive last minute preparations in areas that could possibly come up for competition, all in a bid to put up a far more encouraging performance than what was achieved last year by Ghana’s representative.
The eventual winner will take over from 2009 winner Kaiane Aldorino of Gibraltar. The event is once again being hosted by China after Vietnam, originally towed in line as hosts, backed out of the hosting contract.
Meanwhile, The Accra International Conference Centre has been announced as the venue for the grand finale of this year’s Miss Ghana beauty competition. Billed to be an exciting and never-to-be-forgotten night in the history of beauty pageants, the over 2000-seater facility will play host to patrons from all walks of life to witness the perfect combination of beauty, style, wit and intelligence at work.
