I grew up in a family where giving back was a fundamental part of our lives, which lead me to launch my “Music Heals” initiative in 2014. It aims to help prevent young women and children from being sexually abused, equip them with the skills to be able to make the most of their lives and teach boys to respect girls so that they grow up into men of honor and integrity and thereby become a part of the solution. I am also proud to be an ambassador for one of the worlds most significant child protection organizations, Women and Men against child abuse.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are some of your achievements?
I am a Sony Music Entertainment signed singer-songwriter and performing artist, I have competed at the World Equestrian Games three times, the first time as a vaulter (gymnastics on the back of a cantering horse, it’s as crazy as it sounds!) and twice as a show jumper.

I am signed to one of the biggest record labels in the world and have ridden at the highest level in the equestrian sport successfully, which shows that I am focused, determined, hard working and when I set a goal for myself I follow through with everything that I have. When it comes to giving back, the importance of community upliftment was instilled in me from a very young age and so it has become a part of my lifestyle, which lead me to launch of my “Music Heals” initiative in 2014.
World Class Beauty Queens: What does it mean to you to be a Beauty Queen?
