As You know, in line with pageant season, I promised to interview beauty queens on this site for all our pageant lovers and I have been keeping this promise. Shabi, Ive tried? lolz.
Today I bring you Queen Adaeze Onah the reigning Miss Ambassador for Peace South-East.
When we set out to have her on our platform, we intended to interview her as a beauty queen but after communicating with her, Ive realised that she is so much more than a title holder, this bae is a moving force. Adaeze is a vision driven, focused, enduring young woman. A SuperWoman for real.
Shout out to Daniella (aka DellKing for conducting a wonderful interview for SuperWoman)
know more about Daniella HERE
Dellking: Good afternoon, Adaeze.
Adaeze: Afternoon dear
Dellking: Please, kindly tell us about yourself.
Adaeze: Adaeze is an Enugu State origin, born and bred in Lagos. An electrical/electronics engineering student at Enugu State university, whose dreams and aspirations go beyond the four walls of an engineering firm.
She is a fashion and style blogger at Styletitude.com and the founder of Peace Education foundation Nigeria.
She won’t forget to mention she’s a beauty queen, the current Miss Ambassador for peace (South-East) Nigeria.
I’m a very ambitious person who is never afraid to fail. I like to play a lot at my leisure time and no one is allowed to be sad around me.
Dellking: Interesting ….How has the experience been so far being a beauty queen?
Adaeze: It’s been worth it… learning a lot, meeting personalities and getting lots of opportunities.
Touching lives and putting smiles on the faces of the needy is a better part of it.
Dellking: That’s good to know
So,what does being a beauty queen mean to you?
Adaeze: Being a beauty queen means representing what you stand for, being selfless and compassionate about humanity. Expressing your beauty in its utmost form by being a role model to those looking up to you.
What sacrifices have you had to make as a result of your crown?
Adaeze: Well ,I have had to sacrifice my time… the better part of my time when I’m not in school, goes to advocating for what I stand for.
Dellking: Wow…can’t imagine what that’s like. Moving on… How has the crown changed your life?
Adaeze: It has changed my view of life… when I go on humanitarian duties, I see the vulnerable people and I’m like ” people don’t know how blessed they are until they see the societal less privileged”.
It makes me value and appreciate the little I have. Being a beauty queen has also given me good opportunities.
Dellking: That’s pretty awesome.
Do you think there are one too many beauty pageants in our country today?
Adaeze: Yes I do.
Dellking: Good. Now…there are many pet projects you’ve spear headed during your reign..please tell us about them.
Adaeze: Okay… not many as you say, just 3.
The first pet project happens to be my visit to the bomb-blast victims at the National Trauma Center. This happened five days after I was crowned because there was a bomb-blast the previous day. I donated cash, fruits and toiletries to the victims.
The second is the visit to the leprosy settlement in Oji river, Enugu State; this visit was followed after the unveiling of my initiative (Leprosy eradication support scheme LESS). I made medical and food donation to them on world leprosy day, the 31st of January 2016.
The third one took place on children day, I celebrated children’s day with the vulnerable children at FSP center enugu.
Dellking: Aww.. That’s really amazing
Adaeze: Thanks dear
Dellking: You’re welcome. Curious though, how have you been able to balance your pageant career, being a student and running a blog?
Adaeze: Well, it’s all about planning and organisation. When school is in session, I do school work from morning till about 2pm and work on my blog from noon till evening.
I organise proposals for pet projects and do assignments if I have any at night before I go to bed. That’s what my typical day looks like.
Then during the weekends, I blog, do my style photoshoot and compile posts. During holidays, when school is not in session, I carry out pet projects and logistics for my foundation. Not been easy i must tell you, but the grace of God has been helping me balance up.
Dellking: Really impressive …..
Can you kindly tell us about your blog?
Adaeze: Okay… the name of my blog is STYLETITUDE, it is a fashion and style blog.
It’s a fashion hub that features look books, street styles, red carpet looks, style inspiration, best fashion finds and where to shop them at best bargains. My style looks are also featured showing you tips and tricks of how to work clothes and remain stylish without breaking your bank.
My blog is about a year and three months now, and so far I have worked with six brands including the just concluded AFRICA FASHION WEEK NIGERIA 2016 where my blog was one of the fashion brand/media partners.
What inspired you to start up one and what has the experience been so far?
Adaeze: My love for fashion… I have styling my family and friends since high school until I stumbled across some inspirational post that talked about making paychecks from your passion and being fearless in pursuing what makes u happy.
With that motivation I started up my blog as an avenue to reach out a broad network and continue sharing fashion ideas and inspiration to them. The experience is amazing, seeing that you inspire people and their styles. Getting paid for what you enjoy doing is another joyful feeling on its own.
Lastly…What advice do you have for girls who want to be beauty queens and bloggers too just like you?
Adaeze: Mmm…Well, as for being a beauty queen, you have to be ready to work… its not just about the fame, but representing what you stand for. You have to be a humanitarian ready to touch lives.
Being a fashion bloggers comes from you… you can’t imitate it. If you’re good at it, you’re good at it. All you need to do is take that first step and get your website and social media platform and your talent will speak for you.
Learn from other fashion bloggers too and incorporate trends to be in line with what’s in vogue and you will see yourself excelling. But never forget to put everything in the hands of God.
