Many Nigerian parents believe modelling is indecent among girls, largely for lack of orientation, Miss Bethel Ambwokan, the 2018 Most Beautiful Girl in Plateau State says.

The task of orienting parents especially in Northern Nigeria to understand that there are decent models with good intentions lies on up and coming models, Miss Ambwokan told MKB.

"Some don't even see it as  a career but a waste of time.

"They see people who go into modeling as exposed and bad people but I encourage girls out there to just explain things to them and make them see reasons to back them.

"It is not all about the fame and all but how you will use this to affect your society for good," she said in an interview.

The Plateau Beauty Queen said she herself went through "a lot" before getting her parents' endorsement to go into modelling and pageantry after series of explanations and practical proves of self-selfcontrol while living her dreams.
