During her reign, Vanessa did charity, including a visit to the Missionaries of the poor and orphanage home, among others.
She thanked Mirinda for the opportunity, and wished the next Mirinda Miss Teen all the best.
“I have enjoyed my time as Mirinda Miss Teen and I shall always be grateful. I wish the next Mirinda Miss Teen the best and I will also take this opportunity to encourage girls to stay in school,” she said.
