Reigning Miss Hospitality, Cross River born Okosin Blessing Bassey spoke with Ike Uchechukwu in Calabar recently and affirmed that Queens are born, not made.
What’s your name and where are you from?
My name is Okosin Blessing Bassey, and I am from Odukpani Local Government Area of Cross River State.
What is the feeling like as a beauty queen?
Nothing special, beauty Queens are born not made.
What do you intend to achieve as a queen?
My main project would be “EDUCATING THE GIRL CHILD”.
Have you participated in a pageant that you lost before?
Yes, I participated in African Village Queen Pageant in 2012.
You are also a model; can you tell me more about it?
My dream has always been to be in the lime-light, so that I can be an inspiration to many others, most especially the young girls.
If you are asked to change one thing in the industry what would that be?
To be realistic, I will encourage things that can help ensure continuity in the good projects that are done by Queens during their reign. The system whereby beauty queens fade away after their reign is really disheartening.
What are your challenges as a queen?
It’s been great I must confess, but also been very challenging. One has to get people to understand the purpose of the port folio, especially when one is new.
Who is your role model?
My role model is the first lady of my state Barr [Mrs] Obioma Liyel Imoke.
In the next two years, what do you dream of becoming?
In two years time, I will float my fashion label; establish a school to groom other young girls who want to be like me and even better.
What stands you out from other queens?
I comport myself with dignity, poise and elegance. And for one who has been described as a queen must be confident, intelligent, overpowering and all these aforementioned qualities by Gods grace I exhibit.
