Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry


AGE: 22
HOMETOWN: Libreville
HEIGHT: 5’ 6”

Hailing from the the nation’s capital, Libreville, Maggaly Ornellia Nguema is a 22-year-old graduate of Omar Bongo University. The eldest child, Maggaly grew up in the bustling area of Nzeng-Ayong with her brothers and sisters, attending school from primary to university, going to church where she sang in the choir and climbing mango trees! With her communications degree, Maggaly is pursing a career in advertising where she will create images, sights and sounds that not only intrigue the eyes and ears, but also share emotions. Outside of her personal ambitions, Maggaly is passionate about bringing awareness to Leprosy and fighting to end the discrimination that Lepers face in the surrounding communities. She has started this task by organizing an awareness day that has brought together both Leprosy patients, adults and children, and the community to enjoy a fun filled day with activities, games, arts and crafts. Most importantly this day showed us that Lepers are no different than anyone else.

1. Maggaly likes to sew and even made her own dress to compete at her national pageant.
2. She prefers to walk barefoot.
3. She has a beauty day that she does all of her own beauty rituals. Everyone asks her why she still does it herself since winning Miss Universe Gabon, but it reminds her of when she had to learn these things by herself and she doesn’t want to forget where she came from.
