TALENT THURSDAYS WITH DAISY WAITHERERO WAMBUA
How long have you been modelling?FOR ABOUT FIVE MONTHS. SINCE I FINISHED HIGH SCHOOL.
And after how long did you get discovered? I GOT DISCOVERED WHILE STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL BUT I WAS NOT THAT EXPOSED TO MODELLING BECAUSE I HAD TO STUDY.
As a child, did you aspire to be in this industry and if so who inspired you? I NEVER REALLY ASPIRED TO BE ONE. BUT I USED TO GET COMPLIMENTS FROM FRIENDS THAT I HAVE A MODEL’S BODY.. SOME ASKING ME TO TRY MODELLING AND THERE THE THOUGHT CAME. I WENT FOR IT.
With so many people in your industry, did you have second thoughts in pursuing this career?I HAVE NEVER THOUGHT OF THAT BUT I BELIEVE IF YOU ARE MEANT FOR IT YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY. EVERYTHING IS A COMPETITION IN LIFE AND LIFE IS AN EXPRESS ROAD. SO IF ONE GETS THERE BEFORE THE OTHER.. LIFE IS AN EXPRESS ROAD AND OVERTAKING IS ALLOWED. SO IT IS FOR ONES LUCK.
Every model usually works on contract, which company are you currently working for or have worked for? CURRENTLY AM WORKING WITH ELDORET FINEST MODELING AGENCY (EFMA) AND AM ALSO LOOKING FORWARD TO JOIN BIG COMPANIES IN THE FUTURE. GODWILLING.
How is your availability? Do you work part time, full time or any hours?FOR NOW I WORK ANY HOUR BECAUSE I DO NOT HAVE MUCH RESPONSIBILITIES TO TAKE CARE OF.
Different models serve different brands, what would you say your brand is? What cause do you stand for?I STAND FOR HELPING WOMEN AND THE LESS FORTUNATE IN THE SOCIETY BY OVERCOMING POVERTY.
What makes you stand out if you were to be grouped with fellow models? What do you bring to the table that you think other models do not? EVERY PERSON HAS SOMETHING THAT MAKES THEM STAND OUT OF THE GROUP. I BELIEVE MY BODY BEING SLIM AND ALSO MY SMALL WAIST WILL STAND FOR THAT.
Most models usually support different products or services by partaking in advertisement, have you done any advertisements so far?YES.I HAVE PARTICIPATED IN A SHOWCASING FUNCTION, KITENGE FASHION FEST.
Of recent days, being a model and being a socialite has a light shade of difference between them, do you feel like you are any different from them?YES. A SOCIALITE IS MUCH MORE POPULAR THAN A MODEL SINCE THEY ARE WELL KNOWN OF THEIR FASHIONABLE SOCIETY AND OFTENLY ATTEND SOCIAL EVENTS. BEING A MODEL DOES NOT PARTAKE MUCH OF THAT.
Where do you see yourself in a year’s time? What is your definition of success in this industry?I SEE MYSELF IN A BETTER POSITION. ALL I HAVE TO DO IS STRUGGLE. EVERYONE NEEDS A STRUGGLE TO MAKE IT IN LIFE.SUCCESS IS ACHIEVING WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY IN THE INDUSTRY. SOMETHING THAT YOU ARE SATISFIED WITH AND FOR YOU IT IS FOR THE BEST YOU ACHIEVED.
With such a big and varied ambition of becoming a successful model, have you taken up any model related course?NO. I DON’T THINK MODELING WOULD REQUIRE MUCH LIKE HAVING TO STUDY FOR IT BECAUSE IT IS SEEN AS A TALENT OR HOBBY IN SOMEONE.
Being a model is identified as one of the hardest careers world over as it involves what is visual. With that said how many times do you work out? What is your diet like? And do you use any or recommend any beauty products?I RARELY WORK OUT PRETTY MUCH BECAUSE I HAVE A GIVEN BODY. I ALSO DON’T HAVE TO BE ON A DIET TO MAINTAIN MY BODY.I NORMALLY USE THE COMMON BEAUTY PRODUCTS.
People come in different shapes and forms and this limits one to a particular style of dressing. Are you flexible to wear any kind of clothing? What are your limitations?I AM FLEXIBLE TO ANY KIND OF CLOTHING. BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN I DON’T HAVE LIMITATIONS. I ALSO HAVE TO BE KIND OF EXPERIMENTAL, DECENT BUT PROVOKING.
Most people do not value modelling as a career, what do you have to say to them?MODELLING IS FAR MUCH AS A CAREER. WE DO WHAT WE DO BEST SO LONG AS WE YOU GAIN SOMETHING FROM IT.
