Standing at 5’3, with waist: 26, Bust: 31, Hips: 35 and age: 19, although petite, her ambition in the modeling industry is as tall as a skyscraper. A native of Edo state, this 300 Level student studying Micro Biology at the University of Benin is lacer focus as a model.
“My journey as a model started a while back. My teacher in high school was a photographer. He photographed me a couple of times. That was where my love for posing for photoshoot started. When I gained admission into the university, my craving for modeling went a notch higher.
A couple of times, I Google about the industry, and I gradually gained knowledge. I joined an agency in school but unfortunately; things did not work as planned. But in 2017, I enrolled with Gemians modeling academy to learn the basics of the craft. After that, I became an indie model.
In terms of growth, 2018 was a tough year. But 2019 has proven so far to be amazing. I have done several collaborative shoots with various photographers. I have also received invitations from prospective fashion designers and brands I will be working with. I’m very ambitious. I can’t wait to achieve all of my goals.” – Vera Ofure
