About:

Originally from Ghana, I'm more than just a model. I am an entrepreneur and currently developing hotels in NYC. My passion is in creativity and expressing myself all within the means of helping people. In this life, my goal is to be authentic, stay true to myself and be an inspiration, especially to the youth because they are the future of our world.

Your Story

My upbringing is a unique story. I was born in NYC and shortly after relocated to Accra, Ghana where I spent the first 8 years of my life. I then moved to London, England and attended boarding school. At such a young age being separated from my parents was hard and difficult especially in another culture. I had to learn and adjust quickly. Sports was my way of fitting in everywhere I moved to. After 4 1/2 years in England, I moved to the US and attended another boarding school. Funny enough, the switch from England to the US was much harder for me than from Ghana to England, and many wouldn't think so. Either way, I was able to find my niche, graduated from Penn State University and got straight into real estate soon after. I just recently decided to get into modelling because I figured standing at 6'6 nobody else in the industry has a similar build like me and I have the vision to inspire other unconventionally tall & athletic people to look into this industry and be given an opportunity. It has been challenging because surprisingly a lot of agencies don't see the vision, but with much persistence, I'm sure there will be someone who will take a chance on me.
