Who am I?

Hi! My name is Talin. I grew up in dar es salaam Tanzania xx best place on earth, who ever is reading this put TZ at the tippy top of your travel list!! I think a lot... exploring my mind palace is my favorite thing ever. But generally I find humans interesting, their behavior thinking patterns and emotions... I currently study psychology and when I am not studying I like to philosophize with myself about everything and anything! Life is weird, so I think about all the different ways it's weird and where I can interact my weird with it's weird you know. Exploration.

What do I think about The Fashion Hero TV series?

I think promoting a new kind of beautiful is a great step in helping emancipate people from the pressure beauty standards impose on people, however, I don't think it should be about the "new face " as such just a literal face that is foreign to that standard expectation of beauty. I think the focus of beauty should be in the energy of the new face, the aura that a smile brings, and the general vibe of a person. A persons energy is their most attractive quality regardless of their body composition, I think through this campaign the fashion hero tv series should attempt at the best of their abilities to highlight and emphasize that beauty lies in all of us, as a energy, not just a rare eye color or funky hair style but those are cool too! Point is, beauty is much more then just skin deep.

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

I think if it follows along the lines of beauty as an energy, I believe in the power and wonderful affect of my energy. I was fortunate to grow up in a place which exposed me to the most beauty in people and nature and I think that through experiencing life so uniquely I have a lot of unique learnings that are important for this generation to understand about remaining open minded, enthusiastic and optimistic about life and living presently, these learnings I would love to share! I am fresh, fly and funky and surely a new type of beauty too. I am so confident that if I was given just 30 seconds to show my beauty people will pick up on the vibe and understand the true essence of beauty... kindness!
