To accomplish the dream of being helpful to others, most especially the little orphans that lost their parents.
To accomplish the dream of creating my fashion world that is based on the tribes within the Niger delta Region. So people can learn about the Niger Deltans and this will also serve as a means of empowerment. People can come and learn fashion designing as handwork and use it to help themselves most especially the youths.
And FONDCUP is the only platform I can use to accomplish the dream of helping the great people of Niger Delta.

iv. Society should have a robust system for hard-working citizens.
10. Which rule or law in your culture and /or tradition would you want to change If given the opportunity?
I would change the tradition of women being passed down to their Late husband’s brother or son.
This law came into existence during the time of our forefathers. If a woman’s husband is late, for her to get access to her late husband’s property, she must be married to either his brother or his son. then, the woman would have no choice, except she wants her children will to starve to death. Up till this day, this tradition still lives and if I have the opportunity I will put an end to it.
11. When you become FONDCUP 2022 QUEEN, what would you want the Niger Delta people to recognize you with?
I would want to be remembered, as the one that brought a new Niger Delta. The one that put smiles on the frowning faces of my fellow Niger Deltans.
12. What is your greatest challenge and regret?
My greatest challenge in life was when I lost my dad. Things became really hard and frustrating for me and my younger siblings. I had to carry the responsibilities of both a dad and sister to them. Things were very hard and challenging, but I never gave up because I was determined to see a better tomorrow.
I regretted why my dad died. Up till date I regretted why my dad died.
