My name is Taifa Kongolo Yav, I am originally Congolese, born and raised in South Africa where I attended a French school for all my life. So I have an international scope on the world and everything fashion, music and art.
I am 1.78cm so all my life I was told to model and at first didn't find myself unique enough, didn't find myself to have anything that would make me stand out, but now I embrace how I look and believe I have something to add to the modelling world. From my natural hair to my faux locs, I feel I can rock anything because of the confidence I now have.
I am graduating from McGill in about a month and will be working in Montreal for a year or two and am looking for something that will allow me to express my creativity or help artists make their mood boards come to life. Moreover, due to my trips to Senegal and Congo recently, I have become a micro-influencer and have worked with multiple brands and need help finding what works best for me.
ps: I wasn't able to upload more pictures because it didn't upload those I selected.
