MBGN 2005 Omowunmi Akinnifesi shares powerful testimony (details)

2015 MBGN winner Omowummi Akinnifesi, has penned down a deep piece on the importance of never giving up and listening to people’s thoughts about you. The beauty queen talked about how people tried to make her feel she was not good enough and could not achieve certain things which she eventually did achieve. From not being beautiful enough to win MBGN to not being good enough to gain admission into Kings College London.

Read her piece below;

”Someone very very close to me once told me that it was impossible for me to win MBGN. “The other girls are way prettier than you. Are u blind?”. Yet i won.
How can you win Miss Tourism International? “Look at Miss Russia’s body?”…. Yet I won.
“You can not win Miss Bikini International with your dark skin”. Yet I won. In total 3 crowns. Yet i won
Next was you can never finish with an Upper Class Division. You are too busy as MBGN. Then i finished with a 3.9 GPA. Yet I won
Kings College London can never admit you Omowunmi. Forget applying because they only take certain kind of students. Then Cambridge, Imperial, UCL and Kings College sent me admission Letters. Oxford put me on their waiting list. Because i was told KCL was way out of my league i chose KCL. Plus i liked the fact that my High School was Queens College and my Uni was Kings College. Yet I won
Then i decided to start a business and someone very close to me said “you know you are just not good at Business”. Now they come to me for business advice. And i have 4 companies i run. Yet I won.
I cried everytime someone told me i couldn’t. But have never gone the way people tell me to go. When i do i fail. I go the way my spirit directs. If you follow the words of people you will fall and remain stagnant. Dry your tears, follow your own heart and fail forward knowing you followed you. At the end of the day you face your death alone so what the hec. Lets run this race called life and run it unapologetically ✌?. #Gogetter#Spreadpositivity#Femaleentrepreneur#YetIWon#YetIAmstillWinning”
