Camera knows what I am feeling before anyone else, it peers deep into my soul and allows me to express myself without uttering a word.
All I care about is leaving this life knowing I lived it to its fullest.
I've always loved modeling and fitness.
I've truly gone through a journey of dreaming, pursuing then starting to build my passions, regardless of how scary it might be at times - through modeling & also fitness.
Don't ever let anyone limit your goals. Follow your heart!
You cannot know what makes others happy but you know what makes YOU happy. Choose - it's ok to put yourself first when your heart yearns for something.
Feel free to dream, to create what your heart desires in your mind then take planned action. Any small step is a step closer..& you will very likely find yourself exactly where you imagined!
My father always taught me to appreciate and learn about different people and cultures, whilst enunciating the importance of knowing my own culture and language.
I find inspiration in anyone who is willing to rise up and make a difference because I believe that’s how societies evolve.
The world is full of talented people who are unsuccessful and need the persistence that is the real key of success.
My travel and residence abroad have shaped who I am today.
Despite going through many challenges in my personal life, I always remain strong and willing to battle the adversities I face.
I feel proud for never giving up in all the things that I set out to do, I have emerged as a strong and silently confident African woman.
