Inspired by the many amazing and inspirational women I have got to know over the years, many of whom I call my friends, ‘Girl Talk’ is a new interview programme in which I conduct in-depth and thought-provoking interviews with women on a range of topics including body image, relationships, careers, fashion, mental health and women empowerment.
This is the first interview in the series, with former beauty queen and winner of Miss Kenya UK and Miss East Africa UK. Vicky began a career in the fashion industry before she became a beauty queen where she got exposed to international relations, global business and philanthropy. She fell in-love with the idea of businesses giving back, as well as equipping youth to have their own mindset. She is an advocate for girls and women empowerment and has a deep interest in the developments of Africa.
In this interview we talk about perceptions of beauty, ageing beauty and social change.
