A lot know her face from the runaway fashion shows and the Saturday breakfast show. This year, 24 year old, Leena Shipwata, will showcase her talent and passion at the Windhoek Fashion Week.
Who Is Leena Shipwata?
“I was born at Oupamako village in the northern part of Namibia but raised in Windhoek by my grandparents, however, I was groomed by my father into modeling. My body height, and features fits well into the modeling world. I tried it and it worked out. Fortunately, social media fans supported my passion, and now, I have been recognized by designers to work with and display their work. Although, what paid off the most is that “I always took time to be part of campaigns in order to help others until my face became popular.”
Modeling created a personality in me to always be at the right place at the right time. I got up every morning chasing my dreams because of the passion to outgrow myself through social networking and knowing the ware a-bouts of talent shows. Katutura is filled with great talent and my initial goal is to help others through a state of the art entrainment school to grow the nation. This I will strive for, says Leena Shipwata.
