My Modelling Paid Off! I Did An Ad With Hair Brand – Darling Kenya!

I have always wanted to be in a hair AD! Only because flipping my hair looked so cool in my mind!

This year started with a lot of uncertainty as to what I would do with the rest of the year but now that the year is almost halfway done, I am confident that this will be an amazing year! There have been moments when I have wanted to give up on modeling completely and then a job like this comes my way and I decide to hold on one more time.

Having a hobby like this could be demoralizing and there are times when you want to give up especially because models are not usually well renumerated. When I started modeling, I always went for countless auditions, spent so much money on clothes, shoes and salon visits just to never get a call back from any of agencies I spent hours auditioning for.  I started modeling at the age of 20 so you can imagine how many auditions I have been over the year (Please don’t ask me my age! :-)Spending countless hours on lines waiting for my turn was the only consistent thing in my life!

But you know what? All that perseverance paid off! I was taught resilience and all that prepared me something bigger! Before the Darling Kenya AD, I did one for BET Boss that was everywhere! (I will tell you all about the crazy way I go the job  and my experience on my next blog)

That was an amazing experience for me because I have always wanted to be on a darling commercial! Did you happen to see this commercial? Let me know in the comment section below!

Until next time!

Happy mid-week folks!
