Tears of surprise, fulfillment and accomplishment stream down beauty queen, Miss Lola Adeoye, as she was pronounced Miss Nigeria USA 2016
Miss Lola Adeoye, currently a 3rd year JD/MBA student at the Howard University School of Law, first contested for the Miss Nigeria USA pageant in 2010. Since then, She has contested in and lost 8 pageants, and each loss was like more steps away from achieving her goal.
Finally, on the 28th of May 2016, she beat out the 18 contestants to emerge winner of Miss Nigeria USA 2016.
Following her struggle story, the journey hasn’t been an easy one. Trying to achieve a particular goal and failing in the attempt on so many occasion is enough to question one’s self esteem and the determination to relentlessly continue at the same goal despite discouraging results is quite a feat and a virtue many of us lack.
In Queen Lola’s case, her strong resolution finally got her goal and this is why she is our WCW for today!
