Maame Adjei, a USA based Model, of Ghanaian origin goes back to her beginning and acknowledges the power of determination.
She says, "The picture on the left is my first ever photoshoot that I styled and did my own makeup for in 2007! I was 14 or 15 when I decided I would take modeling more seriously but didn’t have my parents or anyone around to help me get started, so I asked one of my friend’s uncles who was a “photographer” to shoot a few looks of me and I paid him $300 that I had saved up from walking neighborhood dogs!"
She went on to say that she would find any and every opportunity to model and walk in local DC/MD designers’ fashion shows until she competed for the Miss Maryland USA pageant after graduating college. From there she competed in Miss USA, and went on to compete in America’s Next Top Model, moved to LA and the rest is history!
From an amateur photoshoot to working with brands worldwide, to pages of Vogue Portugal, she boldly acknowledges the power of determination. And to that cause she says, "if I can do it, so can you! If you have any dream that you just can’t shake off take this as a sign to GO FOR IT!" From her experience she also states that, "You never know where you’ll end up in a few years. The “small” things you do now in the direction of your dreams, could change your life forever."
She concluded that she isn't new to the modeling world and she is true to it. She has been at it before instagram even existed. Her journey was far from easy but here she is! And she still feel like it’s only just beginning.🙏🏾
She never let her temporary circumstances lie to her into thinking where she came from is where she deserved to stay. That’s why she began '@victoryovercircumstance' on Intagram to uplift and inspire young women to understand that their purpose is beyond their current circumstance. And she is excited to share all that she am working on in 2021 soon!
