What motivated you into modeling?
Firstly, it was push from family, friends and we’ll wishers.
They always told me to go in for modelling that i have the shape and the walking steps but i never really looked into what they where saying until this pandemic started. I now decided to give it a trial.
That mean your friends are your great motivators that push your dreams?
Exactly they are.
Do your parents accept you to become a model?
Yeah they will.
How long have you been into modelling and what are your challenges so far?
As i said before, i have never given modelling a thought until this pandemic started and this was my first performance which started on the September.
So judging from that, i would say is just a month and few weeks.
My challenges so far is just the monetary voting. People find it hard to vote,they all see modelling as a useless fortune.
How do you cope with modeling and your studies?
For now, school hasn’t started but when it does, I will put modelling to a halt till another holiday comes up

I am currently dating
What are your hobbies and interests?
I just love everything concerning music. It cures a lot of pains when listening to them
What’s your ideology about life?
Life isn’t a bed of roses, you have to struggle to make it in life and while struggling you should also struggle to make it after life. You should balance the two and make it be in equilibrium. As the saying goes”Give to ceasar what belongs to ceasar and give to God what belongs to God” the two must be balanced.
And last of all “Chop life in anyway you can before life chops you”

I was searching for recent pageantry when i saw it and decided to give it a trial

The negative impact is just the aspect of it reducing my pace for reading books but on the other side, it has alot of positive impact like Entrepreneurship. It really helped me to be self employed and some other positive impacts which i can’t mention here.
It has really been helpful.
Though i really need to go back to school because the negative impact is creating in terms of study is getting bad day after day.
What motivated you to participate in the contest?
Actually, it was the simplicity of the whole registering procedure.
Starting with uploading any picture from your phone and also the E- voting, it was very much affordable compared to that of others.
I just saw all that and decided to give it a trial
What were your challenges during the contest and how were you able to overcome them?
My main challenge was getting friends to vote for me.Some snubbed me, some saw me as a scammer and lots more.
