Blessing Henebeng aspires to become a top model in future

Blessing lost her sight six years ago, when she was in class at Ejisuman Senior High School, and has never been able to regain her sight.

Despite her painful predicament the visually impaired lady says she hopes to be a top super model in Ghana and the world  in future.

Speaking in an interview on TV3 Tuesday, Blessing expressed optimism that she still has what it takes to walk the runway just like every other model.

She shared her story of how she became blind;she tells how she suddenly went blank in class one day and how she thought that had brought life to an end for her.

I thought my whole world had come to an end because I didn’t know what to do again at that very moment.“I wasn’t eating, talking to anybody, wasn’t getting close to anyone and all I used to do was cry everyday and lock myself up in the room,” she said.

Blessing also revealed in the interview that her favourite model was the wife of former Black Stars player Sulley Muntari, Menaye Donkor.

I love Sulley Muntari’s wife because she’s one person I admire so much because she’s bold, intelligent and has made Ghana proud.

“I used to see myself in her when I had my sight because I had the chance of seeing her on TV, magazines and newspapers.”
