SU: Tell us about your modeling?

Alicia: Ohhhh…been modeling since 2012, its almost 3 years now…am so passionate about it because my family supports me in every way and I book a lot of gigs. I am the runway queen! No doubt about it!

SU: What challenges have faced in the industry?

Alicia: I work for peanuts! There is favouritism. With this I mean when there’s an upcoming fashion show you would like to work on, there are particular models they put out there disregarding others. Yet what I want is whenever there’s a show, it should be put out there for models to showcase. We have potential models everywhere. And here in Uganda, Modeling is not yet taken as a job like in other countries. People think we are getting pimped like other fake agencies do!
