“It all began when I won Miss Ghana in 2004. I wanted to contribute to my community so I decided to commit to social causes” Menaye Donkor
Sales: Menaye Donkor, Miss Ghana 2004, model and aspiring actress committed to social causes.. By: Arianna Pietrostefani
In 2004 her breathtaking beauty earned her the title of Miss Ghana, but she can also boast of a plethora of accolades for her brains.
Menaye Donkor is a model and aspiring actress, and also partner of Milan soccer player Sulley Muntari, her “baby”, as she likes to call him. Ghanaian born but Canadian by adoption, Menaye doesn’t belong to that range of beautiful women that love to rest on one’s laurels.
Quite the contrary. We met her after the match Milan-Barcelona and asked her about her role as a woman and wife. “It all began when I won Miss Ghana in 2004. I wanted to contribute to my community so I decided to commit to social causes.”
Said and done. “With my association, the Menaye Charity Organization, I work to give an opportunity to Ghanaian children to learn and study, so they can have more opportunities in life.” Add to all of this the role of partner of a “Serie A” soccer player in the city she loves the most, Milan. “I adore Milan, I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in the world. It’s a city of fashion, art, good food and I feel right at home.”
