Linda Ikeji shares her beauty contest experience

Sharing her experience, the blogger said she thought she was going to win the beauty contest but did not even make the top 10. According to her, that night was one of the worst nights of her life.

She said:

"I remember just asking myself what I was going to do with the rest of my life because for some arrogant reason, I'd built a future around being Miss Nigeria even before the pageant held. Sigh. For two straight days, I cried wondering what to do next.
"I wanted to be successful. I wanted to be somebody. I wanted to be rich. And here I was being told that I wasn't even good enough to be Miss Nigeria... After a few days of feeling sorry for myself, I got fired up. I said to myself, this life isn't going to defeat me or pass me by."
