Favour Rufus

Nationwide — Favour Rufus, a woman from Nigeria who has been blind since her childhood, recently won the 2022 Miss Port Harcourt City Beauty Pageant, defeating 18 other women.

When she was 8 years old, Rufus went blind after enduring problems with her eyes for 2 years. Doctors said her left eye became completely blind and her right eye might also be blind if she missed her constant treatments.

Even though she had a visual impairment, she did not let it stop her from achieving great things.
