Mariah Adejokun – Nigeria
Hello everyone, my name is Mariah Adejokun, I am 17 years old and I am representing my beautiful country, Nigeria. If I win Miss Teen Africa UK I want to use my title to raise awareness and highlight key issues that affect young Nigerian girls, for example FGM, poverty and education.
I want to be Miss Teen Africa UK 2015 because I want to be a positive role model for other young girls similar to my age. I want them to know that there is more to life than just the negative stories we hear on the radio and what we watch on the television.
By voting for me you are all helping me get one step closer to living my vision which is to inspire young girls living in the UK and help to embrace and acknowledge their Africa heritage.
