Tell us about your growing up and when you venture into modelling
I was born in yenagoa,Bayelsa state.I stayed and grew up with my family and siblings.Growing up,i never liked or fancy modelling as something doing with my time.But a friend encouraged me and showed me all the qualities i have to be a top model which i am today.So i picked the courage and went for my first runway show,(Bayelsa fashion week 2011). And since then,modelling as been a part of me which i love so much.
What has being your greatest achievement ever since you became a model?
Well,i will say everything i have achieved being a model is great to me because nothing good comes easily ,but the greatest of them all is when i was crowned Face of University Top Model Nigeria
Are you a feminist? Do you believe in gender equality? If yes or otherwise please tell us why?
Yes, and i believe in gender equality.It is because we are all created by God and being a woman does not make us any less.it is also said that behind every successful man,there is a woman,so what do you think? If the woman is the brain behind a man’s success ,that means she can even do more than what the man does if she is given the opportunity.
Are there things you wish you had?if yes,please name them.
yes of course. I wish i had my BSc and master’s certificate already.
