Life has been nothing but a rollercoaster for Ghanian-American Mame Adjei in the past year. In just under 12 months, Mame has been crowned Miss Maryland 2015, managed to be top 5 in the Miss USA 2015 competition and is currently a finalist on the hit CW series America’s Next Top Model.
Mame’s recent success and fame has led to her participation in both the New York and LA fashion weeks and numerous TV appearances for local networks. Mame, who currently resides in Silver Spring, Maryland is rarely home as she has been traveling the country (and world) for bookings.
A 2014 graduate of VCU (Virginia Commonwealth University), Mame sees nothing but more success in the near future. She is the founder of a non-profit organization called Empress Foudnation and with this she hopes to impact the lives of many young girls around the world.
In a recent video interview with ILS, Mame opened up about all that has happened since graduating college, and her unique background that taught her how to be a entrepreneur and a self starter. Check out the full video below.
