The Face of Ghana USA is a pageant dedicated to displaying the intellectual, culture and God fearing Ghanaian ladies based in the United States of America.
The pageant strives to give the women a platform to display their beauty charisma, love for humanitarian work, ethnic culture, talents and of course the fear of the almighty God regardless of their various beliefs and religions, she said.
She added that last year’s event took place in Illinois, Chicago at the Black History Museum Hall where twenty beautiful, talented, eloquent and poised Ghanaian ladies from the 50 states of America came together to display their extraordinary gifts on one platform.
The judges on the day crown 21 year-old Ghanaian-American, Business Administration student of Qunisagamond Community College in Worcester, Massachusetts as the winner of the pageant.
Ms Ahenkan said her work as a beauty queen representing the faces of Ghanaians living abroad brought her to her motherland for the first time.
She will be holding a charity ball on February 14 at the Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel to raise funds for her charity events.
