Twenty two year-old Ms Anawate Georgette Adeyiga, winner of the maiden edition of the Miss International Ghana pageant, has promised to make Ghana proud at the international competition slated for Japan,Tokyo next year.

The Miss International pageant has been held since 1960. It aims at promoting world peace, goodwill and understanding. 

 Ms Adeyiga a medical student abroad, hopes to be the first African to win the annual event on the world stage.

In an interview with The Mirror, she said she was ready to showcase Ghana to the world and hopefully bring home the crown.


“It is a dream come true for me.  Being the first Ghanaian to ever take part in this competition comes with a lot of responsibilities as people would be expecting a lot from me.

“Personally, I want to set a high standard and remain as an inspiration and role model to young women worldwide”, Ms Adeyiga stated.

For winning the Ghana competition, Georgette took home an official car for a year, GH¢3,000 monthly allowance and a year’s contract with Fame Model Management.

She would also be a volunteer with the Save The Earth Movement (STEM), a non-governmental organisation.
