Today’s post is a portrait session I did with Clotilde Tukei, a Kenyan model from Turkana County who wants to use beauty to empower women and young girls in the social, political and economic aspects. Clotilde is a commercial model who also does TV adverts, billboards, print, magazine, fashion and glamour shoots. She is also a student at the University of Nairobi studying International Relations and Diplomacy.
