Becoming Miss Face of Humanity 2021 means a great exposure to world. I would raise funds from civil societies and donors to support the needs (medical, educational,legal, financial etc) of PWD’s. I would continue and enhance the campaign by creating a global advocacy for inclusion and equity for all Persons living with Disabilities. I believe in the Social Model of Disabilty, ergo all disabling barriers must be removed in order to create an enabling environment and increased participation for PWD’s.
