My name is Badmus Comfort. I was born on May 15, 1992. I am the only child of my father. Unfortunately, he died before I was born. My mother remarried and I had two sisters thereafter. I attended Bafom International School, Akute, Ogun State, for my primary education, then moved on to Mayflower Secondary School, Ikenne. I am a 300 level student of Industrial Relations and Personnel Management, Lagos State University.
Life as a campus queen
I became Miss LASU on August 8, 2012. Quite an exciting and joyous experience. I was so full of joy when I was crowned queen. I was overwhelmed and shed tears. I never gave it a thought to be a beauty queen. I used to be a ‘normal’ student before I became a campus queen. I was not into modelling before then. The pageant was an eye opener for me which evoked the thought of being a model.
As a beauty queen, I really feel wonderful, it’s a position that elevated me from my previous status. Emerging the winner at the pageant meant a whole lot to me because it is the starting point of my accomplishments. Though very challenging, I thank God I was able to go through it successfully. Being a queen makes me live above expectations and many look up to me to touch lives within and outside my environment.
Crown changed me?
No! MISS LASU is an achieved status in addition to my name, I remain my old self. I am just settling into the status of beauty queen in order to perform above expectations. Being MISS LASU has not affected my studies; rather, it motivates me to work harder. So, I have learnt to create a level of equilibrium between my life as a beauty queen and my education.
I see myself as a fashionable person. I dress to fit and I dress responsibly. I can’t do without a nice looking wristwatch and a comfortable pair of shoes. My two favourite fashion icons are Nike Oshinowo and Genevieve Nnaji.
I don’t joke with my leisure and I make good use of it by relaxing, watching movies, listening to music or reading novels.
I aspire to be one of the best human resource mangers around. Moreover, I want to be one of the best fashion icons of our time in Nigeria. After my tenure as MISS LASU, I intend to continue modelling. I believe it will expand my horizon.
At the moment I am not in any relationship; that would come in due course. Currently, I want to concentrate on performing my duties and responsibilities, starting from my project which would soon be on board.
I intend to do a project on breast cancer which would enlighten people within and outside my environment on the dangers, precautions and how to prevent this killer disease. Furthermore, I want to re – brand the image of my school by changing the perspective people out there have about the school (they see LASU as a socially inactive school).
I want them to know that the school is not only socially active but a school which has students with beauty and brains, who will contribute to the society positively.
Advice to young people
Live up to, and above your expectations, believe in yourself and be self confident in everything you do. Lastly, put your trust in God.
