HEM: Tell us about yourself: Why do you want to work as a model?

I am a very outgoing and ambitious person. I read a lot and um always interested about what is going on around the world. I love dancing apart from what I already do as a model. Working as a model begins with self evaluation and confidence. It gives you that boost you need to be more confident and comfortable in your skin.

HEM: Why are you interested in this career?

Well besides the general love and passion for the career it places you on an influential platform in the society. People pay attention to what you have to say and some go to the extent of looking up to you. It is therefore such a platform I desire to raise awareness for certain societal issues that I feel need to be highlighted. Even fundraising and any other charitable campaigns to help in giving back to the community

HEM: Tell us about your education: Have you attended fashion modeling courses?

Pertaining to my education I am actually starting a degree for Film Radio and TV production. I want an insight on what happens behind the scenes. I would love to make documentaries of life as we know it and I think it helps me to have an intell on situations behind and infront of the camera

HEM: What are your goals as a model?

I am hoping to inspire those who wish to take up this career choice.. Our country and social beliefs lead us to think this profession is not worth the time and energy.
