Who am I?

I'm a 22-year old from Kenya and I've had my share of rejection from agencies and designers because I'm not 'light enough'. The sexual, emotional, and financial abuse that I've experienced while trying to make my mark in the industry has changed my perspective on many things in life. But I've not given up.

What do I think about the Fahsion Hero TV Series?

Watching all those people embracing their uniqueness and becoming the best version of themselves is very inspiring. Fashion hero tv series is changing the lives of many people who participate in the show and it challenges the modeling industry to accept everyone with talent.

Why would I be a great role model for this generation and inspire people as the new face of the Fashion Hero?

Being a role model does not mean that you tell people to be like you, it's about showing them how to embrace their true selves. Having experienced first hand the struggle and self doubt that this industry imposes on people, and not letting it change me, I would be a good role model to others who want to go down the same path. Models who struggle because of their ethnicity/ height/ body size/ unique body features should know that they are not wrong for chasing their passions.
