Her name is Destiny Owusu but everyone knows her as "Ohwawa". This talented model has been modeling for about a year and a half now and everything has been coming together quite profoundly for her. Destiny is 23-years-old ghanaian who currently resides in Virginia, and yes she's African. She's accomplished so many goals within this year as a model. Destiny was featured on Vibe Vixens in their "Vixen of the Day" segment, Afritribe Blog, ytainment.com, and CypressGhana.com in the fashion section. She's paired up with many local photographers , not to mention her photographs are all over tumblr. With all of her accomplishments, this motivates and pushes her to be greater. Destiny was recently signed to Chase Models NY Management and is about to be published in two magazines: Obvious Magazine and Ellements Magazine. This is only the beginning for this young, vibrant, and ambitious model. I know she has more to accomplish this year and will continue to blow people away. Please stay tuned....
I first came across Ms. Ohwawa on Instagram. It's funny because a friend of mine told me to go look at her pictures. She took a photo with rapper ASAP Rocky and I was eager to see it! I would've never known she would turn out to be an amazing model. It makes it so much better that she's from the DMV area just like me. When I started to following her career, she was a freelance model. Her style is fiery and her look is very unique. She strikes me as afrocentric but yet classy. She brings edge and boldness to her photographs that I truly admire. Destiny has a beautiful skin tone that most photographers might be intimidated by especially when dealing with a predominantly white industry. Destiny looks at models such as Naomi Campbell, and Jourdan Dunn as an inspiration for they are women of color that pursue professional modeling careers. Channeling her inner Naomi she will continue to knock down stereotypical barriers in the modeling industry.
I want to wish Destiny great success with Chase Models NY, Zealous Edge is rooting for you!
