Miss Nigeria 2015 says she deeply admires her predecessor, Ezinne Akudo for staying grounded despite being a Queen.
The 22-year-old Cross River State native admitted that even though she didn't know she would become the 2015 Miss Nigeria, reaching the top five gave her confident she could be the winner.
"I came all the way from top 10 to top 5 so at that top 5 stage, it was clear that I had a chance at being the miss Nigeria," Leesi told City People magazine in a new interview.
When asked about her thoughts on the former beauty queen, Akudo who presented her crown at the event on November 11 in Lagos, Pamela had this to say:
"She [Ezinne] is an amazing person. I really admire her. I like the fact that she is able to stay grounded even though she's a queen."
She goes on to say, "She is original so I really like that about her."
The current Queen hopes to use her new status to help empower her community especially younger girls just like her predecessor did.
"I do have pet projects but it is not structured yet," she told the outlet. "My pet project tend towards capacity building for young women," she added.
