Model + Advocate
Born in a refugee camp in Kenya, Akiima has called Australia home for more than a decade. As an internationally recognized model, Akiima uses her platform to advocate for diversity and representation within the fashion industry.
“I am from South Sudan and I’m proud of my traditions and values and my job, the platform I have.”
“Find something you’re passion about and focus on it.”
Get into a routine of doing something whether it’s working out, eating healthier or waking up early to go for a walk. Your body needs a routine. Especially during these weird times — finding that 'normal' and creating routine for yourself is such a mental and physical safe place.
“Use your time wisely and live in the present.”
Focus on yourself and the people around you, the people who love you, your family and friends. I feel like everything just flows from there. You need the right energy around you.
