Achor Blessing was born and raised in Kogi State Nigeria. When she was 17, she was offered admission to study philosophy in Kogi State University. Born in to a well cultured Igala family, she learned that family is a major foundation of life which inspired her to enter into the pageant world where sisterhood is the major key.
She became a strong girl right activist when she was almost raped during her final exams in secondary school and the experience has empowered her to reach out to rape victims and other abused victims.
Winning pageant planet competition will bring her one step closer to achieving her dreams of using beauty pageant platforms as a voice for the weak and a wake up call for our generation.
