Araba Sey, a fast-rising Ghanaian fashion model and brand influencer has shared how she learned to love modelling even though she initially didn’t have a passion for the craft.
The model during a recent interview in Nigeria spoke about how she learnt to love modelling, and how people around her inspired her.
“Modelling wasn’t something that was a passion for me from childhood. But growing up when I got to the university a lot of people kept telling me I looked like a model and it fit me and so I assessed myself and thought about it, “recalled Sey.
“I decided to research more about modelling and know what it entails. I was watching fashion shows, following models and I realized it was something interesting.” Sey also spoke about her first commercial job.
“So, I had this picture on social media and there was this photographer who thought I was a model and wanted me to do a shoot for him. It was through him that I shot my first commercial. I wasn’t really experienced by then but God’s favour came my way and I had my first shoot with a big bank in Ghana.”
After her first commercial work, Sey did other shoots leading to the decision to pursue modelling as a career.
Since then, Sey has worked with leading brands including GTP, Stanbic Bank, Nizoral Shampoo, and Nigeria’s Super Bold Magazine.
She mentioned international model Naomi Campbell as an inspiration.
