Who am I?

My name is Shantee and I am an Afro-Indigenous artist and designer who has a passion for social anthropology. I also am a rare disease survivor and advocate of Ahus. This ultra rare genetic disease has caused me limb differences, but that doesn't stop me from being absolutely bad *ss.


What do I think about The Fashion Hero TV Series?

I think it is what the world needs. We need programs like this to take away the stigma's perpetuated in media today. Seeing representation changes the world, I know representation has changed how I see myself for the better.


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

I have the drive, and I have the understanding of what it takes. Recently, SavagexFenty did a campaign that hired inclusive models, one in particular had a limb deformity...like me, and after that moment I saw her I never wanted to hide my body again. I felt empowered like I never had before, and I would like to keep that message strong and alive. To be confident in your own skin, because THEY are the uncomfortable ones. I will be an inspiration because I know what it feels like to be invisible and to make want to make parts of yourself unseen, I have overcame that trap and am ready to take on the huge task of being The Next Fashion Hero.
