Creating a barrier-free world as Africa's 1st wheelchair runway model

I am the Vice Miss Wheelchair World 2017 and the first woman in Africa to be a runway model in a wheelchair. My main goal is to break the stereotypes associated with people with disabilities in the fashion/ entertainment industry and to pave the way for those to follow and succeed me. The purpose of my work in the community is to instill a culture where everyone feels included and catered for. I want to make the presence of disability more mainstream and accepted in society and to help in creating a barrier-free world where everyone can access.
