Modeling is my biggest passion. I started self modeling at age 13 by selling my self as a brand because I’m a fashion designer.
I made dresses for myself , wore them and modeled them myself. I officially took it serious when I gained admission into Yaba college of Technology last December.
In school I socialized and met makeup artists, photographers and designers who were interested in me. In my first year Within 6 months this year I competed For a pageant in my department. I won and immediately became the MISS AMACOS (association of mass communication student ) I.e the Queen of Mass communication department.
