The Kenyan-born model is the generation’s interpretation of the Sugar + Spice + Everything nice. She came in to Premier models with adorable curly locks and sweetest smile that made their agents to signed her right away. The doe-eyed teenager became a star from her appearance at Prada F/W 2013-2014 campaign joining other model superstars and being the black model to front the brand since Naomi Campbell. A young image of hers carried a spice that is a product of an interesting mixed heritage = Kenyan, Ugandan, Seychellois and British background (source: Vogue UK). From her interviews, we can identify her as a free-spirited individual who loves her origins, family, being young and enjoys every single opportunity.
For the Spring/Summer 2014 she walked 56 shows as well as the Victoria’s Secret PINK segment. With all of these, the girl is never tired of working as she returned for the S/S 2014 ad of Prada and a spot for Valentino, Burberry and Marc Jacobs – Daisy Eau So Fresh Fragrance plus strutting Fashion Week F/W 2014-2015. From her thousands of Instagram, Twitter and industry followers, the girl has established the “everything nice” flagship as a fashion muse, role model to ethnic girls and a personality that you wish to hang out with.
Bless the models!
