TMC Competition


Model I Aspire to be like & why?: Mariam is a University graduate who dreams of establishing herself in the modelling world. Born and raised in a small town in Nigeria to a very religious family, her attempt to break into the modelling industry was thwarted by parental reservations surrounding moral issues of the industry. After moving to the UK to successfully complete a master’s degree, she immediately reignited her interest in modelling, joining model search competitions. She Joined the Top Model Of Colour UK Competition with the hope of gaining exposure necessary to pursue a career as a mainstream fashion model. In her words, the experience, with photo shoot sessions and rehearsals amongst others, has been "incredibly exciting, boosting my confidence, while giving me a platform to pursue and possibly achieve a lifetime dream". With her positive outlook and eagerness to learn, she displays the character necessary to progress.
