We are proud to introduce today, one Francis Odero Omondi who is a computer science student at Egerton University. Francis started modeling in 2015 out of motivation from his friends he says, and it’s something he does both for fun and as a passion.
Read below how Francis responded to some of the questions we had for him .
Which type of modeling do you do and what is your sense of style?
I am a runway model. I do both pageantry and high fashion. My iconic dress code is definitely suits and ties.. a maroon trouser with a black polka blazer finished with brown oxford shoes with a fedora on my head kills it for me.
What has your experience been like so far and which challenges have you faced along the way?
So far it has been good.. a series of ups and downs..negativity and corruption are my main challenges.

What I love most about this industry is that it has no limits.. You are your own limit.. its full of opportunities and above all is full of attention..napenda attention ka dem..hehehe…(he chuckles)
