Queen Nelly Mbonu has been selected to represent Nigeria at Miss Tourism International, in China.
The pageantry will be hosted in Beijing, China’s capital in September, 2019.
Miss Tourism International aims to promote global awareness in areas such as culture, tourism, historical heritage, preservation of the environment and world peace among others.
Mbonu said the beauty pageant will not only teach her to have confidence but keep her off the street and teach her values and the importance of education.
“I believe it is very important to raise girls who will conquer the world and have the ability to stand up for themselves,” she added.
Mbonu is also expected in Sierra Leone by November this year, to represent Lagos State on Miss City International.
