TTT: Were you stunned when you were crowned Miss Mashujaa 2015? Can you describe how you felt at that moment?

Oh my goodness, words cannot describe how I felt when they called my name as Miss Mashujaa 2015. DUMBFOUNDED would be the best word. It was such a well-organized and professional pageant and prior to that I had competed in Mr/Miss Birmingham early this year and go the title of Miss Birmingham Photogenic…so competing in Miss Mashujaa was just my way to say “I tried, because you should never give up unless you try”. The competition was completely different from the wardrobe, the hair and make-up were all on a different level. I am just honored to be part of it. Making the top 5 in Miss Mashujaa 2015 was a dream come true for myself as well as my family, so once I reached that point I was already so happy I didn’t assume anything else. Winning Miss Mashujaa 2015 is a true blessing.

TTT: As the newly crowned Mashujaa Queen what do you plan to do with your new position towards changing the society?

Am planning to rally support from a few of my friends to organize a charity event aimed at a sensitizing the girl child on the importance of reproductive health and hygiene by asking well-wishers to donate sanitary towels because as a lady I strongly believe that no one child should skip classes when that time of the “month” comes, I would also want to be involved in the Beyond Zero Campaign spearheaded by Her Excellency Margaret Kenyatta Kenya’s first lady in a bid to raise awareness on the importance of proper maternal health.

TTT: The fashion industry has some biases, people associate it with the feminine side of gender what is your take on that. If a young boy/girl wanted to be a model, what would your advice to them be?

I strongly believe that fashion is a form of expression any one can venture into the modelling industry and it does not matter what gender one is so long as you express yourself.

TTT: What are the three key things you learnt from the whole modelling experience?

Modelling requires Patience, Persistence, Discipline and Passion.

TTT:  In the recent past young people have been making headlines for all the wrong reasons such as engaging in drugs and substance abuse, sexual orgies and so on. What is your take on this issue and what would you suggest as a possible solution to tackle this menace?
There reasons as to why most young people are indulging in this sort of behavior key among them is the lack of mentorship, I would urge authorities involved such as the Youth Department in Kiambu to come up with initiatives that will see to it that the youth harness their talents and also look into ingenious ways of creating employment opportunities among the youth, that way the will be able to tackle the issue of youth engaging in anti-social behavior.

TTT: Tell us that something thing people don’t know about you.

I am very emotional when I feel hurt, sometimes I find myself shedding tears I find it therapeutic it helps me to ease the pain, am also an avid reader I spent most of my time reading novels and fashion magazines and also practicing modelling poses in front of the mirror.

TTT: Do you have any parting shot or special saying that you can give to encourage young people?

I believe it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from as long as you pursue your desires, and follow your dreams no matter how far-fetched they seem.

No matter what always keep smiling.

Driven by the desire to change the world and the society she lives in, newly crowned Miss Mashujaa 2015 has set her eyes on being an accomplished entrepreneur; this way she will be able to create opportunities for other young people to be empowered, the first born child of a single mother says she yearns for that day when she will be a Super Model a platform that she will use to champion for this and other causes.
