Over the weekend, Rebecca Asamoah, 25, a former 2015 Miss Ghana runner-up placed second at the Miss United Nations Beauty Pageant held in Kingston, Jamaica, making Ghana proud again.#
The pageant which had about 80 beautiful contestants from around the world showed all the ladies exhibit pure beauty and brains as they represented their countries with pride.
It was Russia’s Miss Olga Makhlevskaia that won the coveted crown at the end of the show, followed closely by Ghana and with second-runner up going to Mexican queen, Iris Carbajal.
This is not the first time Rebecca Asamoah has made the country proud, just last year she also beat out beautiful ladies from across Africa to win the Miss Africa competition.
Speaking on why she joined the pageant Asamoah said:
I am compassionate not only for people with status and stature but for the underprivileged. I believe Miss United Nations Pageant is to embark on humanitarian works to uplift women and to positively impart in the lives of people in our various societies and the world at large. I want to be a part of this family to contribute my quota in the world’s development.
