How do you feel being crowned the new Miss MMU and what does this mean to you?
It is overwhelming being Miss MMU.
Being Miss MMU means a lot I mean it has always been the real deal.
How long have you been modeling now and how do you plan to use this crown to further your modeling career?
I’ve been in modeling for 2 years now and I’ll use the crown to serve people as i said am not only going to focus on the girl child but also the boy child.
What advice would you give to your fellow young upcoming models who look up to to you as a role model and what would you say has been your biggest driving force coming this far.
I’ll just be real with them its not going to be easy. They will face lots of challenges but having confidence and staying focused will give them a lead. I have always believed in going for I want, that has always been my drive. Don’t rest until you get it.
Which other pageant do you plan to compete in this year and what would you say is your biggest asset or secret in winning a pageant.
My biggest secrete in winning a pageant is my brains and my beauty and also i stand out in my outfits when it comes to the runway.
Just about how much did you spend when preparing for this pageant and what advise would you give to someone about expenditure when preparing for a pageant.
It was quite a lot but at the end of the day I took the crown.
We spend to earn so I would prefer spending and outshining the rest; and definitely when you outshine other contestants on outfits and Q and A session you take the crown.
What do you think about the Bikini or Beach wear category and do you think it’s right to include it in pageants.
Bikini is fine being in the pageant.
Pegentry is all about you so I believe wearing a bikini builds confidence.
Do you think pageant winners in Kenya are properly rewarded and if not, would you advise other models to focus more on high fashion rather than pageants?
Too be honest pageant winners in Kenya are not well paid but for the high fashion the pay is worthwhile; models should chose to stick where they feel comfy.
Which is usually your favorite and worst categories in pageants and why are they your worst and favorite?
I have no worse category.
I find all categories awesome because I nail it when it comes to dressing.
