Upon relocating to a great nation such as the United States, Lady Kate Njeuma soon realized the potential and possibilities that women in America have, especially African women. Inspired by her mother who has been the greatest role model in her life, her mother’s commitment to her children and her community, she began working and volunteering in various women’s groups within her community as a leader. She began to inspire many women to develop themselves and live their full potential. In 2005, Miss Africa USA Scholarship Pageant was launched in Georgia, creating a platform to empower young women as goodwill ambassador, grooming young women to become great leaders to impact the world. The Pageant is a great and entertaining way to share the African culture and experience with the wider community.
