With a three- year modelling contract with URBNModels in Milan.
Afia, an old student of Akwamuman Senior High School Akosombo, said, when my name was mentioned, “I just didn’t know what to do but to shed tears because it was a dream come true. I couldn’t believe my name was being mentioned”.
Afia who knew nothing about modeling when she joined the other 11 contestants to compete for the then Belinda Baidoo Model Search Africa (Now Top Model Africa) said “I was very shy when I met the judges for the first time.
