Where are you from?

Nigeria.

How old are you?

I’m 22 years old.

How long have you been modeling?

For a year now, started in February 2016.

Why did you want/choose to model?

I was advised to go into modeling by a makeup artist who saw I had the features required. At that point, I had no idea about fashion modeling stuff, but I gave it a shot and ever since, I have had no regrets. I keep on loving it and want to continue to move forward and higher with the career.

What’s the coolest thing you’ve done as a model (a show, presentation, campaign, etc.)?

The presentation for Stampd and shooting my very first video for HypeBeast.

What’s one thing that you believed was true about modeling, but learned was false when you became a professional model?

I had so many negative assumptions about modeling and one of them was that you have to pay an agency fee before you can get signed. Another was that you get pushed to book jobs, but realized it was false eventually.

When you’re not modeling, what do you do in your spare time?

Plan for the future, work on myself, play, gather some new information and so on.

If you weren’t a model what would be you ideal job?

I would have gone into acting. Also, I was working towards being in rank two of the navy in Nigeria before the modeling idea came in.

What is your goal for the future (within modeling and life in general)?

Career wise, I want to become a global supermodel, actor, and go into fashion merchandising, but I also want to feel fufilled in other aspects of life as well. I want to make everyone around me happy and proud, fulfill God’s plan and lend a helping hand to those who are in need. By doing that, I’ll feel fulfilled.

Where are you from?

Born and raised in Melbourne, FL.

How old are you?

20.

How long have you been modeling?

Just on my second season now, about 10 months in.

Why did you want/choose to model?

My mother really was pushing me to get started and I was interested in learning about the fashion industry, without having to pay for a degree.

What’s the coolest thing you’ve done as a
model (a show, presentation, campaign, etc.)?

Pal Zileri in Milan was definitely one of the coolest experiences in
my career for runway.

What’s one thing that you believed was true
about modeling, but learned was false when you became a professional model? 

That you get free clothes and live a lavish lifestyle.

When you’re not modeling, what do you do with
your spare time?

I recently became an intern/ PR manager at a jewelry shop in NYC named
VERAMEAT.  Otherwise, I love to do
personal photography or just kick back and relax on a rooftop with some friends.

If you weren’t a model, what would be your
ideal job?

If I never took on the opportunity of being a model, my ideal job would
actually be in the same industry but on the producing side of things. 

What is your goal for the future (within
modeling and life in general)?

To make an imprint in society and be successful in whatever I decide to
do. I’m very impulsive.
