Ghyslaine Tchouaga, Miss Africa USA 2012, talks about her experience while visiting Equatorial Guinea. She first came to the West African nation in 2000 with her parents as a child. She says that her favorite thing about the country is the people - their friendliness and effort to go the extra mile in order to make foreigners feel welcome is something she finds especially impressive.
Ghyslaine, also known as Gigi, says that Equatorial Guinea has set an example for all African countries. In 12 years, Equatorial Guinea has developed significantly, which is not the case for many African countries. The nation, for instance, has built a great conference center, improved roads across the country, and maintained its cleanliness.
Gigi was born in Cameroon, where she lived for 16 years before she moved to the United States.
