“Models aren’t prostitutes, they are strong people…” Meet Flora, the upcoming ‘Agbani Darego’

Flora Chima is her name, a Medical Biochemistry student of FUNAI, and a fashion model born on the 29th day of December, 1995 to the family of Mr & Mrs. Chima. She hails from Abia state but was born and brought up in Port Harcourt. She had her elementary educations at Foundation Faith Schools, and Brilliant International Group of Schools, both in Port Harcourt. She later proceeded to have her secondary school education at Logos International Secondary school, Imo state and  later switched to Nigerian Navy Secondary School, Port Harcourt, where she graduated at 2012.

She ventured into the modelling industry upon graduation at age 16, and her inspiration came from growing up as a skinny person, as well as the fact that people kept calling her “Agbani”.  However, this basis alone couldn’t have brought her this far, but her love and dedication to fashion, glitz and glamour, camera lights, runway and the career as a whole did the magic.

Growing up was fun for her as she had her brother and her mum, who she was very close to. She also had a couple of friends and family who made childhood fun for her. Travelling is something she loves so much. Meeting new people, seeing new places, interacting with people, trying new meals, cooking, reading and singing are all her hobbies.

One of Flora’s crazy moment

There have been several challenges she faced in modelling, she has to avoid high carbohydrate meals, fatty foods, Ice cream is also something she loves so much, but can’t take always just to keep fit and look trim.

Modelling for her was almost a white elephant’s project, as her parents declined her idea of becoming a model, due to the popular niche “MODELS ARE PROSTITUTES”,but thanks to her agent who was able to change her parent’s perception on what models are, and was also able to convince them to give her their supports.

Combining academics with modelling was one hell of a job, as the trips rub her mostly of her time but she was able to sail through by getting used to it.

Flora Chima

In an interview with her on her opinion of models being tagged as prostitutes, posits that, “Models are not prostitutes, they are strong people. They are people who strive most of the time to make it after being rejected severally. They are tagged prostitutes simply because the nature of their job demands them meeting and mingling with people of class it takes discipline, dedication and so much work to be a successful model, so please respect them”.

She looks to a whole lot of people, the likes of Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, Ajak Deng, Agbani Darego, in the modelling industry and also the likes of Genevieve Nnaji, Mo Abudu, Toke Makinwa, Swanky Achufusi, Linda Ikeji amongst many others.

She strongly believes in hard work, dedication, and consistency.
