About her experience, Top Prize Winner UcheMischael has this to say “I heard about the Maramma Beauty Competition from a friend. So I had to call in to confirm. But at first I was reluctant to contest, because I have stage fright at times. Then encouragement came from every angle, from my siblings, and friends. And so, I was there. My greatest fright came when I got there, seeing different makeup artists‎. To be honest I was scared, but I did it. Winning feels so great, I am very excited. I can't really explain the way I feel, and I want to say big thank you to Maramma Beauty for giving me the opportunity to experience the joy and feeling that comes with winning. I want to also appreciate them for giving young stars (makeup artists) the opportunity to come out of the dark and show their potentials.”
