I tried out for the Miss Nappturality 2009 but unfortunately I did not make it. I was indecisive on whether I should apply again this year. I had so many doubts of being older and the insecurities of my youth set in. I actually waited until the last minute to submit my information and photos. I justified it in my head in thinking that if I don’t make it again this time it was because I waited too late. Low and behold, I made it! Not only did I make it, I became one of the top 5 finalists.
Thank you Sponsors, thank you supporters! Thank you going-natural for the experience!
It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye!
I am Christina Ghansiwiyie Dzenyuy, better known as Miss NP #6, and I hail from the second smallest state in the United States of America, located in the northeastern region of the country, otherwise known as Connecticut, the insurance capital of the world. I entered the America’s Next Natural Model contest at the encouragement of friends who often admire my locs, my hair’s versatility and unique hairstyles…
The Ms. Napptuality competition has been a wonderful experience for me because it has allowed me to present myself to the world and show that having natural hair is not only something beautiful but something sacred.
