Asuamah, a 100 level student who also holds an Higher National Diploma (HND) in Fashion Design is an indigene of Wenchi Brong-Ahafo region in Ghana.
Asuamah, in an interview recounts how she has been in so many challenges. At a point she feared she couldn’t make it however the never give up spirit saw her keep at the pursuit of her dreams while keeping faith in hopes that she will one day overcome her challenges. Her dreams finally came through.
The 24 year old was adjudged the best cat walk contestant of the challenge. This is in addition to emerging runner-up with a prize of gh8000.
While thanking everyone for their supports Comfort disclosed how she is going to spend the money. She says she will use the money to continue her education and hopefully raise some deaf girls to join similar challenges.
According to her, “I know our deaf ladies are beautiful, the only problem is lack of encouragements to push them to join such challenges. Sadly too, they receive no support.
“This is the challenge we are facing however I am sure that my emergence as Miss FAATSA will spur them to step out there to showcase their abilities”, she enthused.
