In 5 sentences, I’ll simply introduce myself as…..

Queenette Awukam, a 20yrs Old Beauty Queen from Ikom local government area of Cross River State. I am a 200level student of History and diplomatic studies. I am a very simple and jovial person. (Well, we would help you find out)

My best personal attributes in 3 words are… Guts, Patience and Charm. (We said it!)

If I was a fruit I will be….An Apple. (You are one already. A very fine one)


If I had a super power, it would be the power to… Bring people back to life.

One thing I probably can’t live without will be….God. I can live without every other thing but God.

One thing I can do better than anyone else…. Babysitting. (Really?)

My role model is…. My Mother

I noticed that Men melted at my presence…. From my early teen age. (Tough one, she wasn’t expecting it)

I would only consider dating a guy who is…..God fearing and Hardworking.

Before CRMBG I was a…. Photography Model.

CRMBG in 1 year has….

Built my confidence, it has helped me grow and since then I have been able to stand on my own and take responsibilities for every decision I make. My 1year reign means a lot; it gave me a platform to impact into lives.

Growing up, I dreamt of becoming…

A successful woman. I have always been a flexible person getting involved in different things as long as it would help people and me. But one major part of my dream is to becoming a women’s right activist. To fight for women who have been victims of domestic and sexual violence. I am still following my dreams.  (What of us, men?)


MBGN 2015 was…

An amazing experience. I met people, learnt new things what’s more to life?

Positivity has always been my drive. I did not feel disappointed when I didn’t make it to the last round. Everybody who picked up the MBGN form must have done that because of the winning. I wasn’t expectant but I was optimistic that it could be me.

An important lesson from MBGN 2015…

Is the fact that in every woman there is a Queen, it’s up to you to hide her or let her shine.


My plans for the future are…

Establish an NGO for sexually and domestic violated women.

Build a reputable brand across everything from fashion to entertainment to arts.
