Matilda Kerry emerged winner of the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria pageantry in the year 2000. This qualified her as Nigeria’s Miss Word representative for that year. As the MBGN that year, her platform was leprosy awareness. As at the time she was crowned, she was a first year undergraduate of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Lagos. Now, she is a practicing Doctor(Primary Health Physician) and President of the George Kerry Life foundation, a non-governmental organization named after her father which promotes Cervical Health Campaign. In 2009, Kerry was an adviser on Super Runway, a fashion and modelling talent show. She got married last year, on the 1st of March to Festus Osazuwa.
When asked sometime in an interview of what helped her win the beauty contest then in 2000, her reply was:
I think it was my smiles and my ability to answer questions intelligently. Remember the pageant is not all about physical beauty but inner beauty and intelligence. These were those things that gave me an edge. The contest was not all on the stage; our performances at the camp were also added to our scores. This, many people don’t understand.
