Reading Experience With Mildred Akuba Edoukou, Miss Ghana UK 2011
Come the month of April 2012, Miss Ghana UK 2011, Mildred Akuba Edoukou, will be in the country to undertake a series of activities which include Reading Experience with Miss Ghana UK.
The 19-year-old beauty queen is currently a full-time student at the University of Bedfordshire where she is studying Interior Architecture. Miss Edoukou was recently crowned Miss BEFFTA Awards 2011, the best black beauty pageant in the UK.
The Reading Experience will see the beauty queen running multiple reading clinics in Accra and the Tema. She will be joined at these reading clinics by several radio/TV personalities who will engage the children in reading exciting texts and other academic materials.
The significant project comes at an appropriate time when standards in our general educational system have disastrously fallen, with an increasing level of failed students at the elementary and high school level yearly.
According to Miss Edoukou, she sought to highlight the essence of reading among school children who could best be described as the future of the nation. The reading clinics are intended to instill in the younger generation the habit of reading.
“Philosophy is defined as the pursuit of knowledge and how best can it be acquired aside reading? Hence, the importance of a reading culture, especially among the youth who hold the keys to the future of the nation,” said Miss Ghana UK 2011.
Aside the reading clinics, Miss Ghana UK 2011 will be donating assorted books to selected schools. She will also make public appearances to send home her message.
The Reading Experience with Miss Ghana UK 2011 is supported by Black Secret, Spa 216, Budget Rent a Car, Gh-One Entertainment TV and Homebase TV.
