Jumoke Orisaguna is a mother of two who used to walk the streets of Lagos selling bread. Originally a hairstylist from Osun State, south west Nigeria, she was struggling to make ends meet, and left her husband and two children in their home town to become a street vendor in the economic capital.

Working from 2:30pm to 11:00pm selling bread, Jumoke would make less than $20 each day –with a profit of around $1.

Now she’s about to become a top model; signed to a modeling agency and gaining international fame and prominence.
