When did you start modelling?
Iâ€™ve always had passion for modelling since I was a child. I noticed I love watching fashion shows. I love fashion, love to dress well and to have my own style. I also love taking pictures. I would always look at my pictures admiring myself and it grew to be part of me.Â Â
How has the journey been so far?
So far, the journey has been good, thank God. I started modeling professionally in December 2016. Iâ€™ve worked with great brands, stylists, photographers and makeup artists, to mention a few.Â
Who are your role models?
I admire top models like Lauren Hutton, Cindy Crawford, Tyra Banks, Cara Delevinge and Iman, but Agbani Darego has always been my role model right from when I was very young.Â
Â How isÂ it like being Muslim and working as a model?
One can still be gorgeous, stylish and yet still maintain their religious beliefs. Just learning to have good self- esteem and accepting yourself for who you are and not trying to blend in with the standard of beauty.
