In an exclusive media chat with The World Satellite, the undergraduate of History and Diplomatic Studies at Benue State University revealed this: “I decided to use Miss Ivory Contest to do a come back to pageantries for obvious reasons. Miss Ivory Contest is an initiative aimed at promoting and encouraging natural beauty amongst Nigerian women.
“Since its inception in 2021 as a trademark of Ivory Beauty Soap; a brand of Givanas Industry Nigeria Limited (GINL) and one of Nigeria’s best-selling complexion care soaps, the contest, which is open to every interested female has been positioned to showcase and reward the natural beauty of women.
“I love exploring platforms about rediscovering the inner essence, beauty, divine nature and allowing the inner light to shine through, authentically and free. So, I entered the contest to visually express the feelings and emotions we sometimes experience when we hold ourselves back through self-doubt, fear, or feeling unworthy of our higher selves and callings in life. I want to explore the feeling of becoming and unfolding naturally.”
Acknowledging the fact that the Miss Ivory Contest is not just about the funfair of crowning beauty queens, the creative and versatile Favour hopes to use the platform, if crowned, participate effectively to resonate and speak about Ivory Beauty Soap in a beautiful and meaningful way, unfolding an authentic expression, self-love and beautiful essence shining through for the world to see.
