About Bukunmi Oluwasina Achievement
In July 2013, I had a solo performance in the United States at the World of Dance – a dance competition in Los Angeles. The competition was held at the Microsoft Theater, with 8,000 people coming out and watching the performances. Although I didn’t make it to the finals, it was the highest turnout I have ever had for a competition, even with others at the competition.
But I don’t see this as a challenge because I see every challenge as a chance to learn. All the best performers went on to even higher levels with their passion and dedication to the craft.
I remember when I won the state title in 2013, I was so scared because I thought to myself, ‘What’s going to happen when I face the judges in the national competition?’ I also remember the national finals in 2014, where I was so nervous because it was a competition with people who were already professionals in the industry, with the best dancers in Nigeria.
In 2015, she earned the opportunity to represent the United States of America in the Miss World Pageant.
