Favour Ndubueze is a newly signed Model for Assiko Media House, a renowned Modelling agency in Nigeria. Dari as she is popularly called by her fans in this interview shares with us her hopes and journey so far as a model.
Tell us about yourself: Why do you want to work as a model? Why are you interested in this career?
My name is Favour Ndubueze and I am as old as I suppose to be (smiles), I want to work as a model because right from when I was little, I always loved watching fashion shows, pageantry, modeling video. But apart from that, I just love it!
I’m interested in modeling because first, I love it and above all, I want to show the younger generations that will be coming up very soon that they can be anything they want to be as long as they put their mind to it.
Tell us about your education
I am a student of Abia state university from the Department of Microbiology
Why would you think you’re fit to be a model?
I won’t say I am fit because nobody is fit, but we try to. Having the determination is what matters.
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progress in this field?
My goal is to push myself and the Agency (Assiko Media House) as high as it can be because it will do us well anyway we look at it.
What makes you different from the other models?
I will say my beginning. Most top models had backup maybe their parents or relatives who are already into the fashion industry help them so it might be a little bit easy for them. But for me, I don’t have that kind of backup but I am still willing to take my chances.
How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly?
I communicate well at least from the little talking to people I have done. Even though I tend to be quiet at times, I make sure I maintain a cool and friendly atmosphere for both myself and anybody I may be talking with
Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?
Yes, I do. I’m not serious with exercise but I’ll try to be.
What do you hope to accomplish at the modeling agency?
I hope to accomplish as much as I can, and I don’t think there are limitations to achieving the goals of the agency.
Who is your role model?
Hmmm, I think Tarmar Awobotu Or Cynthia Abdullahi.
Do you have any limitations?
Yeah, I won’t get involved with any form of extreme nudity.
What is your biggest fear?
My biggest fear is not achieving what I want after all my struggles.
Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
I see myself at a point of being part of recognizable models in Nigeria
What has been your biggest failure so far?
My biggest failure so far was me not being able to convince my father that modeling is not a bad career or a waste of time
If you woke up tomorrow and gained any one ability or quality, what would you want it to be?
(Laughs) I think that will be the ability to increase my height so I can be much taller.
If you could only have one wish, what would you wish for?
Wow, I’ll wish to be the perfect model which anybody will love work with
If you could visit any place in the world where would you go?
