Nurah Mohammed has always had a passion for serving others, and just like all the contestants has interviewed so far, the GMB platform provides the gateway to instant fame and new status in society.

This was the first time I auditioned for any type of pageantry or competition.  I decided to audition because I had a mission. And that mission was to be a vessel through which the lives of many are changed, especially those in communities in the Northern Region.
I also needed a great platform to carry out my project on arts and tourism, geared towards helping alleviate poverty and unemployment.
It was also very important for me to proudly represent my Region and to project our beautiful and rich culture, traditions and histories for the world to see through the display of my talents.

Like all the other contestants, Nurah felt the pressure when the organisers gave the public the voting power to select their favourite contestant to represent their region.

I felt grateful to have been chosen amongst many for that particular stage. I was also quite nervous about what my fate would be eventually and if I would eventually get to represent my region as my competitor was also good.

Since 2007, Ghana's Most Beautiful has groomed many young women from the Ashanti Region's Akua GMB to Emefa from the Volta Region to become celebrities and role models.

Through the GMB platform, I had the pleasure of being a Queen to my people in the North, a beacon of hope and a mouthpiece for my people and what we represent.
I will definitely make good use of this platform and my voice to champion causes that will be of great benefit to my people.
I consciously tried to apply most of what I learnt in the GMB house to my everyday life. Taking it a day at a time, I am slowly incorporating new things into my lifestyle. Special thanks to Miss Nancy for the coaching sessions she took us through while in the house.
