Many people would love to be models. Modelling can be financially rewarding and can also provide many other benefits. Many find the process exciting and enjoy the varied experiences, while exploring new cultures/countries, meeting new people and most importantly being part of the fascinating fashion industry.
Here’s an Accelerate Exclusive interview with Model Bolu and here is what she had to say:
What is your name?
Bolu Nyemenim. That’s Boluwatife Nyemenim, everyone calls me Bolu.
Where are you from?
Badagry, Lagos state and Ahoada East, Rivers State, Nigeria.
What are your dreams and goals?
In a nutshell: To outlive myself. As a model, as an author, a friend, daughter, sister, lover, colleague, I want to leave a lasting, positive impact in everything I do. That’s what life is really about to me.
When did you start modelling?
June 2016, if my memory serves.
What brands would you love to work with, both internationally and locally?
Oh there’s a lot. I’ll just list 10 brands in total because this is inexhaustible. Yikes. So locally: Lanre Dasilva Ajayi, she reminds me of home and the kind of glam I adore as a little girl. Maki Oh that is both glamorous and efficient, maxivive, David Tlale and Onalaja also. Internationally: Chanel, I’ve always been a Chanel girl in my heart. There is also Marchesa, Rodarte, Christian Dior and georgeous Giambattista Valli.
Do you study or work?
Both Currently. I’m a model in my final year at the University of Lagos studying Cell biology and Genetics.
Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
By January 2022, I’ll be budding 24. I should have published at least 2-3 books and built an impressive portfolio. I also have started creating documentaries and indigenous fashion movies. Overall, I hope to be a kinder, more thoughtful woman and to sample (and recreate) a lot of food recipes from places I travel to.
