Annette Addo-Yobo, a resident of North Texas, has achieved a historic milestone by winning the title of Miss Texas 2024.

The prestigious competition, held at the Charles W. Eisemann Center for Performing Arts in Richardson, saw Addo-Yobo, running as Miss Southlake, triumph over strong contenders to claim this esteemed honor.

Addo-Yobo’s victory is particularly groundbreaking as she becomes the first immigrant-born contestant and the first Ghanaian to be crowned Miss Texas.

Born in Ghana and raised in Canada and the United States, she faced challenges early on due to her citizenship status, which limited her opportunities until she received U.S. citizenship in 2022.

Graduating from the University of Texas at Dallas with a bachelor’s degree in psychology in 2020, Addo-Yobo has been dedicated to advocating for autism awareness, inspired by her younger brother Andrew, who is on the autism spectrum. Her passion for this cause was evident during the pageant’s talent segment, where she performed a spoken word piece highlighting the importance of autism safety, awareness, and education.

In her Instagram post following the victory, Addo-Yobo expressed deep gratitude and humility, emphasizing her commitment to continue making a positive impact alongside the Texas community and her fellow contestants. As Miss Texas 2024, she receives a $20,000 scholarship and the opportunity to represent Texas in the upcoming Miss America competition.

Beyond the pageant, Addo-Yobo plans to use her platform, The SPARK Project, to address systemic inequities faced by individuals with autism. Her advocacy includes efforts to influence legislation and raise awareness about the challenges and needs of the autistic community.

Annette Addo-Yobo’s win not only marks a personal achievement but also stands as a symbol of diversity and perseverance in the realm of beauty pageants, reflecting her dedication to making meaningful changes in society.
