Shirley Alero Aghotse needs little or no introduction. In 2005, the 6 feet tall lady won the coveted crown of Miss Tourism International put together by Mrs. Nike Agunbiade-Etiebet.She fizzled out of limelight shortly after her reign. Now, the beauty appears to be back but this time in another dimension.
She told GISTMASTER that she is championing a new organization that would map out a new strategy for peace and stability in the Niger Delta and other parts of the country. According to her, the aim of the organization is to inject the right values and philosophy into the Nigerian youth.
The name of the non governmental organization is “Nigeria Rebirth Renaissance and advancement initiative”. Shirley, a native of Ethiope West Local Government Area of Delta State, disclosed the next thing on her agenda is the conference being planned by the NGO and it is expected to come up in March next year.
On her part, it is bye-bye to bikini or strutting the run way. She noted that her ambition now is to become an erudite scholar that would champion the cause of the common people. “Don’t be surprised to see me becoming a professor in the next few years.I am really passionate about education and all I want to do is to ensure that people of my generation represents the right values that would help make us progress as a nation.I think beauty pageants and all that is now a past of my life. This is a new phase because i believe there are so many issues that needed to be tackled particularly from the grassroots.
Greatly influenced by the great amazons such as her mum, Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Dora Akunyili and others,Shirley said the doors of the NGO is open to progressives, ready to contribute their quota to the lives of an average Nigerian and the country as a whole.
