Miss Ghana Naa

Newly crowned Miss Ghana 2012, Naa Okailey Shooter has revealed she will take a break from school to focus on her project; fighting Buruli Ulcer, as a beauty queen.

She disclosed this on Ghana’s flagship programme, Awake on Tuesday, in an interview with hostess Ama Pokua Mensah.
“I intend to dedicate one year of my life and make a positive impact in society. So I am going to take a break from school so I can concentrate on my charity projects,” she revealed.

“The Miss Ghana brand is a beauty with a purpose brand. It is not just about how you look, speak well or not.”

She indicated that she is hoping to embark on the project with her two runners- up as she pursues a change in the country.

Buruli ulcer also known as Searl ulcer is a chronic, indolent disease of the skin and soft tissue which is caused by a toxin producing mycobacterium.

Some of the exciting offerings on the table for the Miss Ghana beauty pageant according to the organizers include full educational scholarships to study with one of the best universities in the United States of America, Benedict College.

The beauty queen however will not get to go to the States to study as Benedict College doesn’t offer medicine which she is pursuing at the University of Ghana. She however is not perturbed about that as according to her, University of Ghana will not be replaced by her in anyway.

“Unfortunately for me, Benedict College doesn’t offer Medicine and I wouldn’t trade University of Ghana for any other school (so I am not worried about that). ”

In the company of the second runner-up, Jennifer Annan, first runner-up Nadia Ntahu and the brain behind this year’s event, Miss Inna Patty, Naa Okailey Shooter expressed her profound gratitude to the fans who helped her climb to the top.

Naa Okailey Shooter will be representing Ghana at the finals of Miss World 2013 beauty pageant.
