Competing to win the prestigious title of Miss Ghana USA, each contestant not only showcased poise, talent, intellect, personality, beauty, but also exhibited passion to faithfully serve an adopted community within the US, and in Ghana.
The Miss Ghana USA Beauty Pageant was founded by Ghanaian native Gloria Abena Ofosuah Opare in 2009 to promote young women of Ghanaian heritage and to offer them an avenue to achieve their goals and carry-out social and humanitarian initiatives.
Overall, the pageant was very organized; on the other hand, the judges were faced with the tough challenge of choosing only one winner from the outstanding nine contestants. But by the end of the evening, Afua Osei claimed the title of 2013 Miss Ghana USA. The excitement onstage overlaid as cameras flashed, bouquets were presented and proud friends and family ran to the stage, gathering to congratulate all of the contestants for their efforts throughout the past months as they prepared to take part in the pageant.
