We caught up with Vivean Wanjiku an upcoming model based in Nairobi and this is what she had to say.
Who is Vivean Wanjiku?
She’s a young upcoming independent model, ready to try anything just to win her fans and get to be one of the best know models in Kenya and internationally.
Modelling has been in my blood since I was little. I didn’t know how to start but I remember my cousin, Grace, used to design clothes for us and made us model in front of the family. That gave me courage and inspired me to join a training school where JR entertainment took us for training and built our confidence.
Challenges as a model?
There are many challenges but there’s this one thing that always lugs me down which is lack of money and support from our parents. But I believe in hard work. So I support myself financially in any way I can.
Any contests you have participated and which position were you?
Yes,Miss Embu talent where I got to be the first runners up and little Miss Earth Kenya where I got to be the second runners up.
Advice to any upcoming/aspiring model?
Don’t let anyone stop what your best in, just push on, doors will be open to you.
Who do you look up to in the modeling industry?
How’s your experience working with house of legacy?
Am having a fun time hanging out with them, and I love the way they call me in each and every commercial shoot they have.
