Interview with some contestants of MCC 2019

Panka Juniola

Question 1: how was your experience being a contestant in the last edition?

My Experience at MCC 2019 was *Exceptional*. What made it thus was the family spirit and bond that existed between contestants and their patrons. They taught us a lot of things people pay to learn. For instance, how to control a menstrual cycle and maintain a good hygiene ,how to take care of a patient with breathing issues, how to make pastries like cakes, how to handle emotional problems. We had activities like games, questions and answers sessions, catwalking and most especially the All night where they gave us an opportunity to better our lifestyles ,repent and be Spirit-filled.

Question 2: How did being a contestant benefit you (even though you didn’t get the crown)?

Though I didn’t get a crown I must admit I learnt a lot, and my level of Growth has increased. Like I earlier said we carried out several activities that normally should be paid for. They taught us on pastries, health (like what to do when someone drowns or faints) and female Hygienic principles. We also learnt a lot about relationships. For example, How to handle a breakup, How to treat a man/Boyfriend, When to sign out of a relationship, when and whom to date or get married to…

Since then I have become a better public speaker, super bold, not scared of the crowd and I give out what I have to as the Spirit leads. They also taught us on how to become a #MODELPRENEUR. Most importantly, since I participated though I didn’t get a crown, my life has not been the same. I have crushed fear like never before, I know my identity, my purpose activities are progressing. My Spiritual life has so much grown that I can say Heaven is on earth. Our all night encouraged me never to give up on what I wish to acquire and now am doing better exploits. Things are moving so well that i don’t have words to explain.

Question 3

What are some of the things you achieved after MCC 2019, that you believe the contest had a great role to play?

Firstly, I got to network with so many great personalities. Secondly, I’m an emotional counselor. Before I got into the contest I used to handle emotional plights, marriage and couple problems. The Brain behind miss Christian Cameroon which is Miss Christian Africa (Anyakia Florence N.) gave other subtitles to some queens like Miss honesty, Miss prudent, Miss honorable, Miss Diligent, Miss Goodness, Miss Patience and Miss Unity. Fortunately I was granted the title *MISS HONESTY*. This was of great interest as I organised my First Love conference as an emotional counselor on the 03rd January 2020 with title LOVE NIGHT. We had sub topics such as Who to date/marry, When and how to date/Marry. This yielded a lot of profit to youths out there making wrong choices. Thirdly, thanks to the Brain behind Miss Christian Cameroon, I was selected to participate for Miss Gospel Africa 2020 this August

Question 1: how was your experience being a contestant in the last edition?

Wow it was indeed an amazing time spent at Miss Christian Cameroon 2019 ( MCC 2019). I really wish we could go back to the three days camping we had before the finale. There, I was empowered spiritually, psychologically, physically, educationally and above all I was sold to the public. Though I didn’t get the crown, I left empowered. I believe so much in what my queen mother MISS Anyiaka Florence Njang always says, “it’s not only about the crown but rather what u have to offer to the public, it’s better to have no crown and be an inspiration to others rather than having a crown and be dormant.” Not getting a crown on the finale didn’t stop me from working cause after the contest my passion to empower mankind increased.

Question 2: How did being a contestant benefit you (even though you didn’t get the crown)?

It was really a great encounter we had with some great men and women of God through their ministration. They taught us on some great women in the Bible and at the end of the lessons we were empowered truly. I felt heaven on Earth. Oh my God! God’s presence filled me that faithful day I couldn’t hold my self.  Rev Njang and Evangelist Abigail Philip, I would forever remember what you did for us during the all night. Since then my spiritual life took another dimension , I can stand and talk about my God with enough momentum cause he is the starter and finisher of my faith

They also gave us other great lessons during the camp apart of the spiritual aspect. Like, how to talk , walk and behave as a queen, baking, catwalking, menstrual hygiene, CPR Etc. A movie director gave us lessons on how to act the various characters involved in a movie. He tested our skills on how to cry , laugh, get angry, gossip. I really miss everything about MCC 2019.
We also had great music sections. I didn’t know I could sing with this type of voice I have. Through MCC 2019 I found my self in that domain and today I’m manifesting the gift in my life as well. We also had great time dancing with our teacher Gospel mannequin. We danced danced danced and danced.

Question 3

What are some of the things you achieved after the contest, that you believe the contest had a great role to play?

Through MCC 2019 I have become a celebrity because everywhere I go now people are like hello girl can I have a picture with you. This is something I dreamt of. That is, becoming a marketing Communicator where people would see me advertising a company product on TV and radio. Little did I know through MCC my dreams would come true. We had great TV interview sessions with hitv Buea, pstv Buea, canal2 English Buea, and crtv yaounde. after this amazing encounter people who neglected me started sending me pictures they took from their TV during the interview session. Miss christain cameroon 2019 made me a celebrity in my early twenties and it a legacy they Left in my life .

Though I didn’t win a crown, I left as queen. MCC 2019 made me a celebrity and above all a modelpreneur . Long live to the MCC family.

My advice to everyone intending to contest for the 2020 edition is, never let anyone discourage you when it comes to what you are passionate about. Whether u win a crown or not, remember God has deposited something great in you which the community awaits your manifestatio. Keep demonstrating love to mankind with or without the crown for the book of 1john 4:8 says he who doesn’t love does not love God for God is love. As of now, I have already been contacted by managers and CEOs. One wants me to be brand ambassador while the other wants me to be advertising manager.

Question 1: how was your experience being a contestant in the last edition?

It was a great experience I’ll never forget.
Alot of things made it good. Firstly, meeting my peers from all over Cameroon, learning so many new things, discovering hidden talents in me. Another wonderful experience was how my confidence, boldness, courage was built up during the camping in the competition.

Question 2: How did being a contestant benefit you (even though you didn’t get the crown)?

Oh my I learnt a lot of things, Such as, how to be an entrepreneur, how to be a modelpreneur. How to build up myself in a positive way and build up my spiritual life. Also, they taught us on Female hygiene, acting, singing, dancing and catwalking.

Being a contestant made me realize I’m one step above who I was. I got to meet with so many people, live with miss Christian Africa, meet and talk with motivational speakers, spiritual fathers and mother. I also got to know my purpose and discover the real lady in me….alot Mme..

Question 3

What are some of the things you achieved after the contest, that you believe the contest had a great role to play?

After the contest, I started visiting orphanages, doing evangelism and encouraging other women like me more often. Now, I have a little team which I’m training on modeling.

About Miss Christian Cameroon

miss christian cameroon

Are you a female christian with a strong desire to fully represent the Kingdom of God? contributing to the family, community development and nation building while upholding true christian value? Do you seek a platform to express yourself and possible funding for your attainable projects? Have you heard about Miss Christian Cameroon and your wondering what it is, how and when you can register? I hope this article will give you more insight about this pageant.

According to 123helpme,

‘The purpose of beauty pageants is to find ones personality, their own strengths and weakness as a person, gain confidence and raise their self-esteem, and prove to people that it is not impossible to have beauty and brains.’

At first, I thought pageants were really all about beauty or physical appearance, like who’s fairer, who has nicer teeth or a better body figure. But as I grew up, I began to understand that pageants go beyond beauty, people want to know what a beautiful girl has to offer other than her beauty. In this light, MCC has the following objectives,

Objectives

  • Promote women to lead purpose
  • Teach the importance of God’s purpose
  • Nurture young girls to be active both in ministry, home and in the community
  • Educate young girls to apply God’s words in their daily activities by the fruits of the Spirit
  • Encourage young girls to study God’s word and rightly dividing the word of truth
  • Encourage young girls to win souls through their service to humanity

History

Miss Christian Cameroon is an initiative founded by Miss Florence Anyiaka Njang, a Cameroon based model, who emerged as Miss Christian Africa 2018 – 2019. As a result, The Miss Christian Cameroon Pageant is an initiative she conceived after her return from Nigeria.

Few months after her return, Miss Florence Anyiaka Njang decided to bring this initiative to reality; supported by a passionate team. Hence, the first edition of Miss Christian Cameroon came through successfully in 2019.

The Christian pageant which they planned and executed in a short time (two months) recorded great achievements and impact on the contestants and the church as well; despite the many challenges they encountered.

last year’s participants have done so many community projects so far and pictures and videos of these projects can be found on their Facebook pageMissChristianCameroon

The mind of a dark skin girl

The mind of a dark skin girl

dark skin girl

It’s often said, “beauty attracts and personality keeps” but in my case, I feel like it’s the other way round. I feel like people are drawn to me because of my personality not my looks, which is a good thing right. Yeah I know it’s a good thing. I can tell because most of the long lasting relationships I have is with people who love my personality. So don’t get me wrong. I don’t doubt for a second that relationships built on personality are best. But I don’t just want to be loved only because of my personality. I also want to be loved because of my looks.

Do you really blame me for thinking this way? Put a dark skin girl in the midst of light skin girls and she’ll definitely be unnoticed. All my life, my closest friends have always been wayyy lighter in complexion than me, so I know what it means to be unnoticed. If we went out or maybe just walked on the road, they’ll always get the attention and I’ll just be standing there watching.

Growing up, I’ve seen how much people glorify light skin girls. I’m not just talking about tv, or social media, I’m talking about real life. As in just being light skin makes you already beautiful before your other features can be checked. whereas, if you’re dark, then you’re less likely beautiful. If you are dark and beautiful, you’ll hear of sub categories such as ‘nice black’, ‘clean black’ or ‘beautiful black’. Of course, at the other end of the rope, you’ll hear of ‘dirty black’.

Majority of the times I was told that I was beautiful, I thought they were lying. If someone complemented me, it was so hard to appreciate. I thought that they were just trying to make me feel better. Not saying all complements were true but I was blinded from seeing the ones that were.

As a dark skin girl, it feels like we need to do more to feel and look beautiful. No wonder, many people tend to bleach their skin. In as much as I am so much against it, sometimes I understand them because I know the pressure. The main problem with bleaching is not about what is been done externally but rather what is going on internally in your mind. Your color may change but your mind won’t.(follow this link to find out more about skin bleaching). With the melanin popping social media trend, it’s almost like if you don’t have big hips, butts or boobs then your melanin isn’t really popping. In reality, if you don’t wear good dark skin makeup or dress up sexy, your black beauty will rarely get noticed.

I used to think that issues about colorism are faced by blacks in white countries. What I don’t understand is why a black will maltreat another just because of a slight difference in shades. Hhmm, the way some people behave errr, it’s like they are whites and we’re blacks. Thanks to social media, a lot of dark skin appreciation is going on. Looking at it keenly, you’d notice that dark skin women are put on a lower bar but a higher pedestal. All the hyping and praising always ends on social media but in real life we get to face reality which is

  • we are labeled ugly, because we are dark skin
  • don’t get attention or get noticed because we are dark skin
  • we are often the second choice because we are dark skin
  • we are always called all sorts of awful names publicly or not, by strangers or not, because we are black
  • Being dark skin feels like being less privileged
  • you probably don’t understand 80% of what we go through because you’re not black.

Some people think the aforementioned concerns mostly the ‘ugly black ones’ but this video will shock you.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmIgFs5_2D0&t=2s

Hey guys, this isn’t meant to be a pitiful post. I just thought I should share with you some of the things we go through as dark skin ladies. If you need clarification please leave a comment below.

Fellow dark skin girl, which of these could you relate with?

Phenomenal Woman

Phenomenal Woman

BY MAYA ANGELOU

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size   
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,   
The stride of my step,   
The curl of my lips.   
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,   
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,   
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.   
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.   
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,   
And the flash of my teeth,   
The swing in my waist,   
And the joy in my feet.   
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered   
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,   
They say they still can’t see.   
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,   
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.   
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.   
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,   
The bend of my hair,   
the palm of my hand,   
The need for my care.   
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

This poem is all about the power we women possess. Phenomenal Woman is a lyrical poem that sends out an important message to the world, empowerment comes from being confident in your own female skin, no matter if you are not seen as cute or fashionable by the masses. So whether you are light skin or dark skin, it doesn’t really matter because you are a woman phenomenally. Unique in style and gracious in your ways.

Five Braids Ideas for Women of Color

Five Braids Ideas for Women of Color

Braids are protective and creative styles women use to show off their personal style, creativeness or just to protect their scalps and hair. If you’ve been letting your hair loose in the air for a long time and you’re looking for a means to cover it, braiding is definitely your go-to style. If you are looking for a style that’ll last, these braids ideas for women of color will still cut the deal.

Lately, I’ve been braiding my hair a lot. Somehow, I feel like braids remind me of who I am, a black woman (not that I forget) but it kind of makes me feel more comfortable in my own skin. Aside from the afore-mentioned importance of braiding I found out something quite interesting. Did you know that a long time ago, braiding was used as a means of survival? rice was hidden in braids in order to help slaves survive the middle passage. Mothers sometimes put the rice in their children’s hair while braiding so that once they are separated, their children won’t starve to dead.

Also, though enslaved women were raped and treated as sexual objects, their crown (braids) carried messages of hope and freedom. As a part of their culture, braids were used to identify a particular tribe, age, marital status, wealth, power and social position.

Box braids were expensive in terms of time, material and installation. It could have been assumed that a woman who could afford to sit for many hours adorning her crown was indeed a woman of fortune.

Having understood the significance of braiding, let’s check out a few braiding ideas.

1) Rasta

black braids

This is like the commonest type of braids I know of right from when I was a kid till now. I rocked it back then, and I still do now. You can decide to do either the small, medium or large sizes, but remember that the smaller it is, the longer it’ll last. The only thing about braids is the time it takes. You can literally cry your butt out but thank God for new developments everyday. Now, you can find braided wigs or crochets in stores which save the time while still giving you the rasta feeling.

2) cornrows

Cornrows ( popularly known as “pass mesh” where I grew up) is a slight modification of rasta. It is better in that it takes less time, depending on the style though. You could either do small sizes in a very stylish way or you could still do just 2, 5 or more and you’re good to go. There are so many variants as you can either take it to one side, all behind or hold it up in a pony tail especially when you don’t want much hair touch your neck.

3) Faux locs

faux locs braids

I so love this style. If you’re a lover of locs but aren’t ready to permanently twist your hair like me, then you definitely need this. Be it short or long, I think you’ll love it anyways. One good thing about the crochet is that you can use them over and over and they’re quite affordable. In Cameroon, a packet with 35 inside cost about CFA3500 and 2 packets will be enough.

4) curly hairstyle with braided front

braided weaves

Aside from braiding your whole hair, you can decide to braid just the front part then add a short or long weave behind, preferably a curly or kinky weave. This is great for people who might want to use a weave they’ve been keeping for long

5) short braids

short box braids

This includes all kinds of braids from rasta to afro locs to faux locs. Are you a lover of kinky hair and dreads? afro locs are here for you. And there’s the short rasta too which has been making waves lately

Points to note

  • Most salons can do braids but not all of them can do it well. Personally, I’ve learnt the hard way that it’s better to pay high and be satisfied than the contrary. Especially people who keep virgin hair. For the braids to be smooth, it needs to done well. (For those in Buea, I recommend 2412 just beside presbyterian church Molyko)
  • To spice up your braids you could add beads, rings, colored thread etc
  • Braids are good for women of all skin types and ages too.

Hope this was of help to you, which of these is your favorite braiding style?
