It comes with one major challenge.”sexual harassment “. Here in Nigeria, once you introduce yourself as a model/beauty Queen.. The first thing that comes to the mind of most people is (prostitution). Most people see models as prostitutes, they might go as far as harrasing the individual.
There’s also financial challenge :most people shy away from granting financial support to either models or modelling organization probably because they feel it’s child’s play or a waste of time.
