Tell me about yourself?
I’m Oiwoh Ruth Omoyemhen; an 18 year old 200 level student of the department of Science Laboratory Technology at the University of Benin.I hail from Esan Central local government at Edo state.I am the second Child and first daughter in a family of three.I’m a fashion enthusiast and a freelance Runway model. Having featured in many fashion shows and collaboration shoots for various apparel brands within Benin City, my modelling career has been on the upside.
What do you learn from the commercial modelling ?
First off,being a commercial model is very challenging but the challenging part is the most beautiful side of it.This is because it has shaped me not only as a better model but a better individual in the society. I have learnt from this industry that it is only your uniqueness,diligence and determination that can perform the magic,there is no other magic elsewhere.
What is your greatest strength and how did it help you to become what you are today?
My greatest strength is God.He is in the only one that keeps re-echoing the ‘I can be better’ factor in my mind.He has always been on the move even till this moment. Practically, I am a good listener.I listen to ideas from people.I don’t go with everything but I utilize the ones that I think can really fit in with who I am.Of course,being a good listener and total reliance on God is the source of my beautiful status today.
If you could change a significant thing in the world, what would it be?
I would rekindle the spirit of birth control system to regulate the world population growth.The adverse effect of overpopulation in the world is nothing to write home about.This is why the government finds it hard to cater for the populace at a go and even why there are many beggars and pilferers on the streets mostly children who are victims of ineffective birth control system. My birth control system will hinge on the maximum of two children unless the couples have enough resources that could cater for more than two children.
Amidst deceptions and selfishness, how can we make this world a better place to live in?
We can achieve this by constant orientation exercises for people especially married couples about the importance of selflessness and a nationalist mentality.The message garnished with its importance should be passed across to their various households.This would help improve the society and the world at large.
Tell me about how you slog through being a beauty queen and school activities? How do you get through it?
At this point in my life,being in school triggers the educational spirit in me and that’s because it is the first in my pecking order.But I will never cease from adding this, no matter how tight my schedule seems to be, there’s always at least a little time for extracurricular activities.That’s where modelling and my activities as a Queen is squeezed in alongside schooling.
What piece of advice do you have for budding commercial models?
Whatever is worth doing at all is what doing well. Be calm. Also, work on your charisma and confidence. These are the first outward signs which are noticed by anyone. Stop dwelling in imaginations.Work hard to make your dream a reality.Do not follow the crowd.Stand out instead. You do not need to be overly spectacular because you are a model or something flamboyant than that. Believe in yourself and work on your poise too.
Who is your role model and why?
I like Victoria Beckham. This is because she portrays my ideology of what an ideal model should be.She is a Fitness junkie and fashion freak.She lives for modelling too.She is worthy of emulation.
