Ghana Rising Hearts: Emma Van Lare -Miss Face of Africa Texas 2012

"Emma is a junior at the University of Texas at Austin where she is currently studying Radio-Television-Film and minoring in Spanish. She has high hopes of becoming a producer of African film and media and playing a hand in bringing the African film industry to the world stage. She feels immensely blessed to have had the opportunity to represent the beautiful country of Ghana in both the Miss Face of Africa - Texas Pageant and Miss Ghana U.S.A. Pageant.." Emma Van Lare
Paulina Opoku-Gyimah says: I just stumbled upon the uber beautiful Emma Van Lare, the winner of ‘Face of Africa Texas 2012’ title and just had to share it with you.

It’s a first for me… to see someone winning a Miss anything with natural hair and she is from Ghana!!! Wow…
Blessed with incredible natural beauty in a community teeming with ‘fake’ hair, eyelashes, coloured contact lenses, paint-it-back-on eyebrows, and Kwame Nkrumah Circle midnight red lipstick et al, - Emma Van Lare is a breath of fresh-air with a very bright future!! And I bet you, once the powers that be at Miss Universe Ghana see her here on Ghana Rising blog, –they’ll have her representing our great nation at the next Miss universe in no time!!!
