If there’s any young lady that fascinates us (at PassionistaHub) with her winsome smiles, it is 24-year-old Nigerian US-born model, Adaora Akubilo. Born in Windsor, Connecticut, Adaora had a remarkable experience growing up in Nigeria as a teenager. On relocating to U.S.A, acclimatizing was not easy as this presented its seething challenges. While in High School, she was approached by a model scout from John Casablanca. This is how her foray into modeling started!
As a professional model, she has done numerous campaigns for top brands. Recently, she featured in “Sports Illustrated 2012 SwimSuit Issue”, thus making her rookie debut in the 2012 Issue. We absolutely love every single shot taken! The Sport Illustrated shoot was photographed in Cairns, Queensland, Australia by Walter Iooss Jr. Here’s what we scooped!
Other campaigns done by her include (but not limited to) Garnier, Abercrombie and Fitch, JC and Macy’s commercials.
Her hobbies include: reading, writing, listening to music, dancing, cooking, and being in the company of friends and family.
With the following statistics: height 5ft 11′; bust 34; waist 25; and hips 36, Adaora who is a B.A. Degree holder in English Language, is out to rock this 2012 and beyond.
She is currently signed on New York Model Management.
N/B: The yearly Swimsuit edition of the magazine has propeled the modeling careers of supermodels like Tyra Banks and Oluchi O. Orlandi. On the cover of this year’s Swimsuit issue is model Kate Upton.
