Juliana Mensah – Miss Ghana 2018
Ghana is in West Africa. It borders Côte d’Ivoire to the west, Burkina Faso to the north and Togo to the east. The word Ghana means “Warrior King” and is derived from the ancient Ghana Empire. Ghana is a very friendly country, ideal for first time travellers to Africa. The people are generally very helpful and welcoming. While their laid back attitude and lack of organized tourist sights/trips can be a little annoying to begin with, before you have been there for very long you realize that it is one of the delights of this country.
Tourism in Ghana is growing very quickly, and more tour operators are seeing increased requests for Ghana as a travel destination. Ghana is also rich in gold. This is a stable country with great potential for growth though much more needs to be done in terms of its infrastructure.
GET TO KNOW MISS GHANA
Miss Nations Of The World Ghana 2018 Juliana was born and raised in Greater Accra, the Capital of Ghana. Formally known as “The Gold Coast”, Ghana is a country located on the Coast of the Gulf of Guinea and the country is well known for its diverse wildlife, old forts, rich culture and welcoming beaches. It was ranked as Africa’s most peaceful country by the Global peace index and growing up in a country like this, she believed it lead to her inner peace contributing to her happiness in the current World where she finds herself.
With her, growing up was a mixture of fun and some challenging moments as well because in as much as she had her whole family supporting her, she was less confident about herself, the mentality and fear of she not being good enough and paying more attention to what society had to say rather than believing in herself. She believes in the fact that, she felt lucky growing up because her family was always there for her despite the minor and major challenges she encountered hence developed an interest in helping others to feel lucky as well.
She has participated in couple of voluntary work and she finds nothing much more fulfilling than that. She developed an interest for pageantry during her first year at the Ghana Institute of Journalism where she read communication studies and majored in journalism. Not only did she wanted the opportunity to perfect her weaknesses into strengths, but also attain a platform to assist women and children who are the most vulnerable in our society by positively impacting into them through public speaking.
Juliana had just completed her four year degree course in Journalism, waiting to begin her National Service in September and looking forward to working with a reputable media firm after a year of service to her country.
She was Ghana’s Representative during the 2017 edition of Miss Global Beauty Queen held in Seoul, South- Korea and participated in one national pageant (Miss Earth Ghana) in 2016.
