She is currently working as a debt collector and a part time photoshoot model. Apart from the photogenic stride, Miss Grace has participated in other online photo contests like Seensta, a natural hair challenge and a traditional wear challenge where she emerged 2nd and third, respectively.
Miss Grace heard of the photogenic stride contest from a friend who was also a participant. During her interview with Afridesk she was asked if it was difficult soliciting for votes to which she replied “it was not easy but since I am a go-getter, I did not give up. I wanted to win.”
She has expressed her desire to pursue modeling full time but the one challenge she is facing is raising the money to enroll into a full time modeling class.
When asked if there was anything else she would like to pursue apart from her modeling career, her reply was “of course, I am a business oriented person. In the near future, I want to run my own business. I make beads, handmade bracelets, anklets, waist beads etc.” She went ahead to show us her really beautiful designs. She makes them in her free time and sells them. She also reiterated that modeling is still her greatest passion.
Miss Grace won the photogenic stride contest with a total vote of 5521 which confirms her go-getting personality.
