More about Miss Minnesota Liberia:
My name is Koisey Hiama, I am 22 years old, I am the eldest of three, and I belong to the Gbandi and Lorma tribes. I recently graduated with my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. During my time there, I remained active in a variety of organizations that were primarily focused on bringing African American students together on a PWI campus. As a recent graduate from the U of M, I plan to go on to graduate school to receive my Master’s degree, have a variety of careers and potentially one day open my own practice with professionals that are people of color who figure out how best to serve minorities. Aside from being a student, I’m also a model, which has helped me grow confidence that I hope to help other girls have. It’s sparked a goal of mine to try and help to someday make a difference in the fashion world, by helping to change the definition of the standard of beauty and create opportunities for women of all races and sizes. I’m determined, motivated, and overall excited to have the chance to participate in something bigger than myself.
