Firth in one sentence: Malaika is an African beauty with perfect skin, beautiful hazelnut eyes and a positive attitude.
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.
