Her skin is proof
But she’s like so adorable
this is magic
who. is. she.
That’s Hamamat Montia! (Her name is
actually spelled incorrectly above.) She’s a Ghanaian supermodel and the 2006
winner of Miss Malaika Ghana, a Ghanaian beauty pageant and reality TV show.
(Blast from the past on that last one…
Hamamat winning her Miss Malaika crown in 2006!)
In addition to her job as a model,
Hamamat is an entrepreneur and activist. She’s the founder of Africa Eats Now, an
organization committed to reducing malnutrition throughout Africa.
She also just recently launched a series
of children’s books, Zuzu & Sasa, which tells the story of two Ghanaian
sisters whose adventure throughout Africa discovering magic, gaining
self-confidence, and learning about African culture and history.
I believe she’s now moved back to Ghana
after being away for a while. In the videos, she’s visiting her family in
Tamale in the Northern Region of Ghana. (Shea butter is a suuuuper important product for many communities in that region.)
She’s also a mum and has two little ones of her own. :3
In conclusion, Hamamat is a stunning and very accomplished Ghanaian woman!
