She started modelling in 2006.At the start it was more of a hobby to her, but little did she know that the passion would make her one of the few successful African models in Scotland. She worked with two agencies but she came to a limelight when she joined Mannequin Models Agency where she got a chance to do bigger fashion shows and got to know the industry well.
She returned to Tanzania in 2010 and started her own Model agency (Blackfox) with her friend as her business partner. She has partnered with many fashion designers and events in Tanzania as its one of her biggest passions.
