Did you always want to be a model? Tell us about how you were discovered.
Yes, I have always dreamt of being a model. When I was a kid, I used to admire Naomi Campbell, Alek Wek, Adut Aketch, and other amazing models; they inspired me a lot. So, when I grew up, I decided that this was what I wanted to do. I was discovered through Instagram by my mother agency.

Most memorable modeling experience so far?
My first show with Prada. It was a dream come true since it is one of my favorite brands, and I have always wanted to work with them. The runway setting was magnificent and lively, the outfits spoke for themselves, and the music was so serene. Everything was top-notch.

One song you have on repeat, and why?
Excess Love by Mercy Chinwo: I love this song because it talks about God’s love, and he has shown me his love.

What other passions do you have aside from modeling?
I love art, and I draw during my free time; I have also learned the handcraft of crocheting, and I’m looking forward to learning more skills.

What is something you’ve always wanted to do/try?
To ride in a hot air balloon in Cappadocia (Turkey) while watching the sunset.

What change would you like to see in the world?
It would be wonderful if we could spread more love and be kind to one another.
