I’m still the same person- Miss Nigeria 2018,Chidinma Aaron speaks about crown
Miss Nigeria 2018, Chidinma Aaron over-crowned 17 other contestants at the grand finale held in Lagos to go home with a whopping N3 million, an apartment and a brand new car.
In this interview, the Project Management and Customer Relationship Management graduate opened up on her new status, and her pet projects among other.
Speaking on the greatest advice her parents gave her, the beauty queen said:
“The greatest advice was ‘you’re a queen; you’ll always remain a queen, you’re blessed. Always remember that.’. That resonated in me all through.”
Speaking on how the Miss Nigeria platform has impacted her, she said:
“It has impacted me in a number of ways. It has made me a lot more self aware and has afforded me in-depth knowledge of the inner workings of some issues in our country, and has led me to be more empathic in my dealings with individuals.”
“I have learnt a whole lot put together actually. I would sum it up by saying that staying true to myself and giving my best to anything I do is the greatest joy and the key to happiness and fulfilment.”
On whether anything has changed since she assumed office, she said:
“My office as Miss Nigeria is really mostly me serving contrary to popular belief. Whether I make an appearance at an event, or I’m at an interview, or at the mall, I don’t necessarily feel different. The obvious difference will be cameras flashing lights on the red carpet. I would say, I just do what I came for and remain myself. I treat my crown as an office that it is and carry out my duties to the best of my ability .”
