A:I must say that Africa has the most diverse and expressive fashion. Contestants at the Miss World Academy House were impressed by the designs I wore.

Q:So whose designs do you love rocking?
A:Kaveke, Patricia Mbela and Ogaki. They created my initial designs as Miss Kenya and to date they still are my favourite.

Q:Your to go outfit would be?
A:Jeans, a cute top and a pair of comfortable flats work for me anytime.

Q:The worst you’ve ever dressed up was?
A:Being a tomboy, style was never my thing. However, my worst was tracksuits, which I wore almost everyday.

Q:Your ideal guy of style would be?
A:One who can combine both casual and official in a fashionable twist.

Q:Fashion pieces you’d love to have are?
A:Custom made heels and dresses especially now that I’m re-vamping my wardrobe from tomboy to fashionably classy.
