Miss Universe Ghana was launched at the La Villa Boutique Hotel in Accra on Thursday, July 5 to start activities for 2018 edition of the pageant.
Speaking at the launch, head of Malz Promotions, Menaye Donkor Muntari, revealed the pageant will also be used to showcase Ghana’s tourism.
Contestants, she indicated, will be taking through tourism-oriented activities in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism, Arts & Culture to ensure the tourism sector receives the needed attention it deserves.
Menaye, a former Miss Universe queen, took over the organisation of the pageant last year. She and her team pulled out what she described as first class event which saw the crowning of Ruth Quarshie as the queen.
Ruth went on to make Ghana proud by making it to the top 16 stage of the world contest.
“Miss Universe Ghana has been an amazing experience. I won’t change it for anything in the world. Miss Universe has opened doors that would have not been opened for me before and it’s amazing. I will like to share that with anyone that is interested in experiencing the same thing,” Ruth said when NEWS-ONE asked about her experience as Miss Universe Ghana 2017.
