Watch: I want to raise awareness on autism in Ghana – Miss Universe Ghana 2020, Chelsea Tayui
Miss Universe Ghana 2020, Chelsea Tayui hopes create awareness about autism in Ghana
In an exclusive interview with Ameyaw Debrah on the ‘Ameyaw Meets’ show, the newly crowned beauty queen opened about her passion for rasising awareness about autism – a serious developmental disorder that impairs the ability to communicate and interact.
According t0 Miss Tayui, her younger brother has been diagnosed with autism.
“Mine is autism because my younger brother has mild autism and i really want to make sure that everyone in Ghana understand autism for what it is, because i was told that women in Ghana drown their babies due to lack of awareness and lack of knowlegde on autism and they confuse it for something else altogether or they don’t l know what it is or maybe some people just don’t care to find out so i want to change the narrative and shift everyone to the right direction” she said
Chelsea Tayui was unveiled at a glamorous event held at Labadi Beach Hotel, Accra on September 27. She will represent Ghana at the international Miss Universe pageant slated for early next year.
