My advice to aspiring models – I’m not going to preach to you to do this or that because different strokes for different people. But always remember this, be positive, focused and determined. Never look down on yourself and never look down on anyone, don’t ever feel you’re in a competition with someone. Be yourself and work on your attitude, personality and confidence. Don’t be too thirsty for opportunities, let go and let God do it for you. Always remember God in everything you do and see how you’ll excel.
