Born into a family of ten, she is the seventh of eight children. After finishing her secondary education at Regan Memorial Secondary School, she won the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria pageant in 2002. This made her eligible to represent Nigeria at the Miss Universe pageant in Puerto Rico.

However, she fared better at the Miss World pageant in the same year where she was a finalist, as well as African Continental Queen of Beauty.
