I like to look good no matter the occasion.

Kenya is great! I love to be there with my family.

My favorite model is Tyra Banks.

My life mantra is: Walk by faith and not by sight.

I love the runway.

I love art and sketching and I am really interesting in acting.

I look up to every model who is confident and who knows what they want in life, and who is goal orientated.

I always wanted to be a model; I was dreaming about it; Models always looked so confident to me.

I was raised religious; I miss the routine of going to church very much.

My mother gave me the confidence to stay strong.

Enjoy life and stay positive; Anything that inspires you, hold onto that.
