Bukola Martins, Mr And Miss Nigeria International Pageant 2016
Finalists, up close, Mr And Miss Nigeria International Pageant 2016
Meet Bukola Martins, she’s from Abia state, representing Lagos. Bukola was born in Lagos, a student of Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.
Bukola Martins is also a fashion designer in making.
Bukola Martins wants to be in this competition because she strongly believes she’s a natural born “queen”.
She has strong convictions that she has so much to give, and the auditions came at a time when she felt she’s actually ready for something she believes she has natural instincts for.
Bukola believes that this pageant has a lot to offer her, as long as she’s ready to work hard, which she is. Because I am not the only person here, she adds.
Although she’s had no hands on experience, she’s been in modelling shows, but never a pageant, except secondary school counts.
Of course it’s an experience, I added not to dismiss the impacts of starting young in life has on what we eventually become in life.
Talking about her strengths, Bukola feels her zeal for perfection and winning would make her a very strong competition, she considers herself to be very competitive.
Ordinarily, Bukola believes she’s a team player who likes to carry everyone along, but she also likes to win.
A beauty queen is one who is beautiful on d inside and out. Good intellect, good morals, a leader, an example to her community, with a great personality, she says.
Asking her if she becomes a queen, and happen to have the ears of the 1st lady, what would be the 1st thing she would want to work with her on, as a development to the country?
She replied: I would want her to help with education and empowerment of children in the lower level school….. because it’s the foundation that really determines the future.
There are so many bright young minds, in public schools, who don’t av a future….. So I’d really like her to help me train those young bright children to becoming responsible adults.
I know am still going to learn a lot of things in the house, and am ready for it, I am open to learning.
The thing is I have joined several volunteer groups, to help in the little way I can.
And even, in my area…… It is something I am truly passionate about. I believe everyone was brought to this world to impact, and help others.
So am trying in my own way to do that she added.
Team NOTV: If you had to do one of this to win any contest, which one would you choose?
1.Eat something (not disclosed) with eyes covered or
2. be chained in a glass of running water with the keys at the bottom or
3. Swim across a lake to get foods for the team.
Or would you forfeit and loose the competition?
Bukola: Am not a very good swimmer, but am sure I’d go for that option. I am very sure I can’t do any of the other options.
The women of power who inspire me would be J.k Rowling. She’s been on d fight for social inequality (also one of my passion), and poverty.
She came from a low background, gone through experiences which has also formed part of the reasons why she’s a firm advocate.
Another person was and still is a motivation, Princess Diana, she was greatly misunderstood, she had a great personality, a very tender heart, and also passionate about the same thing as I am
My flaws would be that I am a very sensitive person, I can take anything given to me, but at the same time I have my moments. I am too understanding, which is the reason why I am sensitive.
But mostly I am very cool headed.
For anyone who wants to be a beauty queen, you have to be yourself, that is very important. Because to be someone else is to be someone less. She says as words of encouragement to fellow contestants or anyone aspiring to become a beauty queen.
Bukola Martins and the rest of the finalists were selected after 2 weeks of Intensive online voting.
