Are you African and fierce? Do you feel you have what it takes to ‘talk the talk’ and ‘walk the walk’? Do you have the desire to excel in the field of modelling and beyond? Are you bold and eloquent with unique features? Do you have a passion for success?
The ‘Black and Proud’ Model competition 2014 is a fashion and modelling initiative aimed at developing and providing young African females a platform to excel in the field of modelling and beyond, providing each applicant a unique opportunity to achieve their desired goals.
African models have struggled in their efforts to excel in the field of modelling and beyond globally. Although, models in general face several challenges irrespective of their race and cultural background, African models have had course to tackle with their efforts to excel and promote their true ethnicity.
The word “Black” is a Metaphor used here to represent a foundation on which Africa’s culture, heritage and ethnicity are embodied to give an edge and charisma that supersedes falling back to a notion that ‘black’ is just an ordinary colour. It promotes strength, unity, beauty and diversity on which a number of African women all over the world have embraced and created entrepreneurial goals and achievements for them.
This project therefore embraces women from all over irrespective of their skin colour, race or social-cultural background who are proudly African.
Several notable international African models have used such opportunities to excel and achieve greatness in the world today. The competition gives an avenue to promote Africa’s richness, beauty and diversity while upholding our cultural background and ethnicity.
