Rebecca Nana Adwoa Kwabi, a 26-year-old fashion student of the Maureen Signature Institute, is the proud winner of Miss Ghana 2019.
She beat competition from 18 other beautiful contestants in the highly contested Saturday night event to win the coveted title of Miss Ghana 2019.
This year’s Miss Ghana was held at the plush Kenmpinski Gold Coast in an atmosphere of splendour and was witnessed by Miss World organiser, Julia Morley, Miss World 2018 Vanessa Pounce de Leon, Minister of Tourism Arts & Culture, Barbara Oteng Gyasi, Minister of Gender, Children & Social Protection, Cynthia Morrison and a host of others.
Rebecca also won miss fitness, photogenic, best skin and top model awards in addition to winning the crown.
As part of her prize package, she was presented with a Hyundai official car and also has an opportunity to represent Ghana at the Miss World pageant. She will also be volunteering with Exclusive Events Ghana for a year in addition to a monthly allowance of GH¢ 1,000.
“I chose to be part of the revered Miss Ghana brand because I genuinely believe that over the years, it has been the quintessential springboard most beautiful and ambitious young women ride on to cut their teeth in becoming women of substance,” Rebecca Kwabi, who is a twin, said about taking part in the pageant.
Sarah Odei Amoani, a 22-year-old law student at the University of Professional Studies (UPSA), who is also a talent development and career guidance coach, placed first.
