It is that time of the year when the search for the most beautiful, intelligent and responsible girl begins in Ghana- the search for Miss Malaika Ghana 2008.
In Kumasi on Sunday April 13 and Accra on Saturday May 3, the search trains will make their first stops to find that young, intelligent and most beautiful lady to represent Ghana at Miss Malaika International come December this year.
On these days, scouts at the various venues will look out for intelligence, beautiful, personality, striking features, boldness and the desire to take up the responsibilities that come with the Malaika crown.
Delegates of the pageant are also expected to be fun-loving, adventurous and abreast with social issues.
Each year, courtesy Charterhouse, young women between the ages of 18-25 are given that wonderful opportunity to become ambassadors of Ghana while earning for themselves prestige and luxury as presented in the juicy prize packages.
In November last year, 21-year-old Laurie Naa Lamle Lawson was discovered and crowned Miss Malaika Ghana: And only four months into her reign, Laurie is reported to have made several donations to vulnerable children. The first was at the Christian Faith Foster Home (Frafraha) and the second at the Children’s Ward of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.
Beginning mid April this year, Laurie is expected to begin her community to community services aimed at eradicating malaria in Ghana in collaboration with the National Malaria Control Board and USAID.
Since its inception in 2002, Miss Malaika Ghana has become the most prestigious and most useful beauty pageant in Ghana.
This stemmed from the fact that right from the beginning, Miss Malaika Ghana has been positioned as a Reality TV Show, which offers participatory excitement for the viewing public by allowing them to get up close and personal with the delegates.
This format has proven so successful that it has become the de facto format for all beauty pageants lately.
In so doing, the public has been involved in selecting their favourite as the winner, which has always made the winner accepted by all. The venues for this year’s searches are Erata Hotel in Kumasi and Miklin Hotel in Kumasi on the said dates.
