An American of Ghanaian parentage, Mame Adjei, has been crowned Miss Maryland, USA 2015 at a pageant held earlier this month at the North Bethesda Hotel and Convention Centre in Bethesda, Maryland.
Ms Adjei graduated in May this year with a B.A. double major in Political Science and African-American Studies from the Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia.
She is an avid reader interested in working for and with children and young people through mentoring and other supportive activities.
During one of her visits to Ghana in 2012, Mame had internship training at the Information Communication Technology (ICT) Section of the then Ministry of Information where she assisted to proof-read and edit news stories for the Ghana Government portal.
As the Miss Universe Organisation (pageant owners) prepares Mame Adjei for the Miss USA 2016 contest, her humble request is for friends and sympathisers as well as all Ghanaians, to pray for her to win the ultimate prize.
