One interesting thing about Yahyra Erica Nego, newly crowned Miss Universe Ghana 2011 is that she was Miss Minnesota USA 2009 and a semi-finalist in Miss USA 2009. Erica is half German and half Ghanian. She was born and raised in the United States. This is the second year in a row than an American with Ghanaian ancestry competes in Miss Universe.
