Top Model Victoria Michaels named brand Ambassador for AFWL 2015.

25 Mar

AFWL Ambassador 3Top Model extraordinaire, she is the true definition of beauty and brains combined; multi-talented, intelligent and focused, she is exceptional as a runway and a commercial model.

An enthusiastic social change advocate, Victoria’s passion for Women and Children’s Education led to the establishment of the Victoria Michaels Foundation – a non-profit organization seeking to empower women and less privileged children across Ghana.   It is a vehicle to drive various philanthropic and charity projects in Ghana, including support for various children’s homes, orphanages, destitute women and anti-poverty campaigns; and she hopes to make the Foundation’s work a pan-African project by 2017.

Groomed by the late legendary statesman designer, Kofi Ansah, Victoria Michaels’ international modeling career has seen her participating as a runway model at the AU Summit GOLD Show, BBC Fashion Show, Dubai Fashion Week, FIMA International Fashion Show and Dark & Lovely Fashion Show. Victoria has also been invited as a guest to some of the most prestigious fashion shows in the globe including the London and New York fashion weeks.  She has also been featured in major publications like Vogue Italia.

She is one of the most sought-after models to be brand ambassador and lead commercial model for leading businesses in Africa.  She has played major roles in commercials for Hertz Rent-a-Car, Vodafone, MTN, Nescafe, Da-Viva, and Bela-Aqua mineral water.  Charitable institutions also see Victoria as a powerful brand ambassador; she was chosen by the British Council as one of two representatives from Ghana at the All African Youth Summit in Johannesburg, SA.

Victoria has won many awards for her work, in 2014 alone; she came out with four outstanding awards including being honoured by Ovation International as its first Angel of Hope Award recipient. This award recognizes celebrities in Africa whose image and positive contribution continues to inspire hope across the continent. She was honoured that evening alongside Ghanaian former leader – President Jerry Rawlings and her late mentor, Kofi Ansah who was awarded post-humorously.
