Kenya

English

Nasenyana is a fashion model born in the town of Lodwar, situated in the Turkana District of Kenya.

Her first foray into modeling was in the Miss Tourism Kenya competition in 2003, where she was crowned Miss Nairobi. It was through this competition that she came to the attention of Lyndsey McIntyre of Surazuri Modeling Agency.

Soon afterward, Gamma Photo Agency came to Kenya to do a story on McIntyre's scouting work and were so taken with Nasenyana that she became the main feature of the story; which later ran in France's Gala magazine.

In November 2003, Nasenyana traveled to Europe to build her portfolio prior to the Supermodel finals in New York City. She soon signed with agencies in London, Italy, Austria, Spain, Ireland, Canada and Sweden.

Since then, Nasenyana has shot several magazine editorials, a video for Lacoste, and a catalogue for Issey Miyake.

In 2011, she was also named AFI African Fashion International's, Africa Fashion Week Model of the Year 2012.
