1.What does beauty mean to you?

We are all so different so it is difficult to define external beauty. So for me, beauty starts with the heart/soul. It then radiates outwards from there.

2.What’s one of the best beauty products you’ve ever used and why?

I struggle with dark marks so for me hyaluronic acid cream is a fav. It makes my skin so soft and it gently fades marks as well.

3.How has COVID and lockdown affected your beauty regime ?

it has definitely had a positive impact. My skin has had a chance to breathe because I no longer need to wear makeup everyday. I have also been able to drink water more water since I am working from home so I can run to the bathroom every 15 minutes 😉

4.What’s your biggest strength?

That’s a tough one, but I think I am resilient. I am able to power through and bounce back.

5.What’s a cause that is important to you?

I think it is definitely mental health awareness. There is so much stigma surrounding mental health issues like depression , especially in Christian circles and in the African community. But it is one of our biggest silent killers.

6.What are the 3 things you can’t live without?

My family, music, and good food.

7.How would you define yourself in three words?

How would you define yourself in three words? *fun-loving, compassionate, driven.

8.What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?

“Live everyday as it it is your last.” This helps me to treat people with kindness as that is how I would want to be remembered.

9.What’s the last bit of self-care you performed?

Does taking a nap count as self-care? Because that is my favourite form of self-care when I feel tired or overwhelmed.

10.What does a successful 2021 look like to you?

Growth in all aspects of my life. In my relationships with loved ones and in my career.
