Being a model in the Ghanaian environment is one of the hardest things ever.
You are trying to gain the attention of photographers, designers and organizers of fashion shows and building your portfolio whiles trying to make a little money on the side.
People might not notice you the way you want and it can trash your dream.
The journey to being a successful model is full of struggles, sacrifices, being broke and rejection.
These 6 models are on their way to greatness with their perseverance to achieve what they want and gain the recognition they deserve.
