How I earned the title ‘Chief Driver’ – 2015 Miss Ghana shares her story

226views

Today I will share with you my Miss Ghana experience. On the 7th of November 2015 I won the Miss Ghana Beauty Pageant. During my year, myself and my runners up each had cars. I was given my car 2 days after the event. I was also given a driver, my first runner up had also received her car however my 2nd runner up (Rebecca) hadn’t received her car yet so she will either ride with me or the 1st runner up (Afua).

I didn’t win a cash price even though it was advertised that a cash price will be present. I also did not receive a monthly salary. When I asked Inna, she told me that usually when a sponsor gives money as a cash price, it was to be divided and shared as monthly allowance, so since there wasn’t any cash price in my year, it automatically means no monthly allowance. She went on to say, that was the reason she was encouraging us to get more sponsorship in form of cash so we could benefit from the 10% she will give to us. So just to make this clear we had no prize money, and no monthly allowance.

After a while I started to drive myself everywhere I was required to go. I was not aware of what happened with the driver but to my knowledge, he one day just stopped working with us. I will usually drive Rebecca on her sponsorship rounds and also go on my sponsorship rounds. Rebecca and I will always pay for my fuel. Inna gave each of us a task to visit 10 companies individually each day, making 50 companies by the end of the week. This was getting unbearable eventually for us both, driving from company to company and fueling the vehicle ourselves. It was about time we mentioned it to Inna, and so we did. Her reply to us was she didn’t have money either, and she was also going on rounds so the best thing we could do or ourselves was to get a fuel company sponsor. We tried, but it seemed our proposal didn’t carry enough weight.

During that time Rebecca had started going for driving lessons and shortly after got her license. Even then, Inna requested she gets a driver with 10 years’ experience and other requirements I cannot remember. Each time Rebecca brought someone Inna will not approve so I was tasked to prove she was good enough to drive in order for us to be free to go about our 10 companies each day. So I will let Rebecca drive my car so Inna would see that she was ready and capable. After 5 months Rebecca’s car was given to her.

Each time we had an event to attend, we will have to use our own money to sort out or clothes, shoes, make-up, hair etc. How we were able to look “Queenly” for events was not of any Concern to Inna. She was more concerned about appearance. Always saying one day we will make it but that day never came.

We were all supposed to attend international competitions after winning Miss Ghana. Mine was Miss World, Afua Miss Naiades, and Rebecca Miss Africa. At about the time Afua had gone to Benin for her Pageant I was still preparing for Miss World. I however had to pause my preparation to attend the event. The night before the travel I was informed by Inna that the driver will not be able to make it and so I was tasked to drive from Ghana to Benin. I drove Inna to Benin and back. This was when I was given the name “Chief Driver”.
