3. My take on modeling as a profession?
Modeling is a business and requires dedication and hard work, and as a model, you are your own business! Like any business, it takes time, effort, commitment, and patience to become a successful model. Remember that success does not happen overnight. When attending a casting call, Present yourself as the perfect candidate: show confidence, have a good attitude and a friendly personality. Show your personal style, but keep it clean and simple and always make a good first impression
4. How long can you be a model realizing that women grow fast and change too?
Anyone can become a model! There are different kind of models, editorial, runways, sports, commercial, photo models and so on !
Age does not count! As long as you have a talent, good motivation and passion for modeling
5. In recent times, you have participated in beauty pageants! Why do you participate in those competitions?
I participated in these competitions because I want to improve my confidence level, public speaking skills, meet new people and promote the enormous beauty of Africa! I want to use this opportunity to say a big thank you to Tbl model management for the awesome training and AFTV (African television for the great show! And all the models my friends and family for their love, friendship and support!
6. Do you serious think as a black woman you will be accepted in Dutch model society or there is a need for Africans to create their model agencies?
Yes , I think as a black woman , you can be accepted in the Dutch modeling society!
Within two and half years in the Netherlands, I have done photo-shoots with more than two hundred photographers in The Netherlands, Germany, Paris and Belgium! It is very possible!
7.What are your plans?
My plans includes Promoting the beauty of Africa , and to start an organization to help educate young African women on how to avoid early pregnancy. I also enjoy raising funds for less priviledged children in orphanage homes!
In the future If I have the resources, My major reforms will be to increase access to education, health, transport. With this three in place, the people will be able to put every other thing in place. Free education will be of paramount importance for all public schools. Simply because there are children out there who cannot attain basic education because they can’t afford their fees. If the education is free we would also have more future educated mothers that will bring up a new generation of children, because children are the futures of tomorrow
8. What does your family say about you being a model? Do they support you?
Yes, My family supports my Modeling career! I have been modeling since I was in Nigeria. I continued modeling when I came to The Netherlands
I have modeled for ten years now. My parents, my siblings and friends has always been there for me , especially my Mother who believes in me and in my potentials I am very thankful and I love you all.
10. I see you are very proud of being a Nigeria; does that work in any negatively against you when you meet people?
No , It does not affect me at all Being a proud Nigerian! I love My country and I am proud of being an African! I Africa is blessed with culture, a great place for tourism and very welcoming! Nigeria, has a wide variety of culture, friendly people, music, the surroundings that reminds you of the past but pushing us forward! Nigeria has a potential of being a very powerful nation! These are the reasons why I am proud of my country !
11. If other young ladies want to be a model, what will be your advice to them?
My advice to all the young ladies out there who wants to become a model is , Keep a healthy lifestyle: drink a lot of water, hold on to a healthy diet, work-out regularly, get sufficient sleep and avoid cigarettes and alcohol. Look after your skin and your hair: use skin & hair care products, keep make-up at a minimum, take off your make-up every night and go for a regular trim and apply to casting calls!
12. Lastly when you stop your modeling carrier, what do you intend to do like marriage, children, another career?
My plans includes finishing up my studies of B.Sc. International Business and Management studies and starting up my own business as a coach/consultant for aspiring models and as a public speaking coach. I will love to be married in the near future as well and start up a family life. I will always do shoots for the fun though…Making new pictures is like my form of art and expression. I will always do it! I love modeling!

You've Touched My HeartYou've given me a reason
For smiling once again,
You've filled my life with peaceful dreams
and you've become my closest friends.
You've shared your heartfelt secrets
And your trust you've given me,
You showed me how to feel again
To laugh, and love, and see.
If life should end tomorrow
And from this world I should part,
I shall be forever young
For you have touched my heart!
