Alexia Uwera Mupende is the winner of last year’s Premier Model contest. Lifestyle Magazine’s Grace Mugoya spoke to her:
Briefly tell us about yourself…
I am 28 years old, and I hold a Bachelors Degree in Business Information and Technology from Mount Kenya University (MKU).
What do you like about modeling?
I am inspired by the fact that I am able to showcase people’s designs, but also the possibility to travel around the world modeling.
Where do you see yourself in the next few years?
I actually plan to build on my skills so that I positively contribute to the modeling industry in the country. I also want to become an international model.
You look hot; who is the lucky man?
No one yet. I am single and not searching.
Do you think getting a lover through a friend is a wise idea?
Personally, I don’t think it’s a good idea because one may have to blame that friend when things do not work out.
