One of our favourite top Models, Adesuwa Aighewi is looking to start her own TV series soon to shine the spotlight on Africa! She said this in a recent interview in Vogue magazine’s latest issue.
Raised by environmental scientist parents in Nigeria and America, Adesuwa says she was not allowed to pursue modeling until she had gotten her science degree.
The 30-year-old breakout model has used her platform as a highly sought after model to advocate for diversity and inclusivity and is hoping to get a beauty contract that will fund her plans to showcase Africa through her eyes.
She says “Instead of me being a doctor helping one person at a time, now, as the face of something, I can help thousands more. I’m prepared to spend the rest of my life-fighting.”
She also wants to change the narrative of Africa. She says “I want to show what Africa is from an African’s point of view, and the quickest way to educate people is through pop culture.”
She adds that “I want people to see the art, creativity, and joy there is, and how much the world would benefit from Africa’s resources.”
