Ghanaian-Canadian supermodel, Nini Amerlise, is making waves in the modelling industry in Canada and raising the flag of Ghana and Africa high as a result.
Ameyawdebrah.com reports that in March this year, Nini Amerlise took home two awards at the AFRIFAMU Awards held in Los Angeles; Best Canadian Model of the Year and one for philanthropy recognition called Using Talent to Impact Women.
Life has not always been so good for the Ghanaian-Canadian who was a victim of several counts of domestic abuse and bullying growing up.
Yet, because of all she has been through, Nini developed a drive to empower the youth and women after much mentoring, which lead to the establishment of We Are Royals Inc.
We Are Royals is a non-profit organisation seeking to develop the esteem and confidence in youth through arts and culture in and across North America, West Africa and the Caribbean diaspora.
Aside from all of these, the international supermodel has been featured in major publications like Vogue UK, Flare magazine, Be Body Aware Campaign for Vogue Italia, Glamour Magazine, Huffington Post, Daily Mail UK and Jamaican Gleaner.
