“They were like, ‘She had that, she can’t have it again. She has this, she can’t have it again.’ That’s why I did not win for the second time because they are allergic to winners. They were like, ‘She is already rich, give others a chance.’

It can only be God’s doing because without this second experience I would not know a lot of things. I didn’t know that it is a crime to want to win again. But anyways, I am still a winner.”
