Vicky Njoki Ngari-Wilson
BMW: Vicky... You are Kenyan... but there is definitely some mix... Let us know what is going on there.
Vicky: Everyone always asks me this so I would be happy to settle it... lol. I am fully Black Kenyan. Both my parents are from the Kikuyu tribe. However my mother's father is very very light-skinned and he has a dark blue ring around his pupils, so there could be some mix.
BMW: Talk about being Kenyan... We are swearing in an East African in the White House next week... Lots of African parties getting prepped up here in the Washington, DC area...
Vicky: Imagine! Well you know what they say... Once one shows us the way, Tuna Endelea (we carry on!) in swahili.
BMW: I read somewhere that you ultimately wish to have a jet to fly you, your husband and your twelve children around. How close are you in this life's goal of yours.
Vicky: I don't know how close I am... God Works in wonderful ways. All I can make sure is that I am moving towards it everyday.
BMW: We saw you win Miss Kenya and Miss East Africa UK in the summer of 2008 where we happened to be among the judges... To say you seemed shocked and confused when they announced that you where the winner is an understatement. How shocked where you?
Vicky: Can you say understatement again?! When they called my number again, the room became completley empty and I just remember showing my ticket to my family and friends in so much confusion. Oh gosh the photos are so embarrassing!
BMW: What have you been up to since winning Miss East Africa UK 2008... What has the crown done for you so far?
The titles have allowed me to meet a lot of influential figures in the political, Charitable and Media industries who are happy to help me with my projects for children and young people both here in the UK and Kenya when I am ready. I will be doing a schools tour in June in Kenya with Britain's House of Lords representative Acie Marshal where we will launch our system to help young people create their own opportunities while serving their country. Myself and Mr East AFrica are planning to Launch 'The Shout Campaign' as well as visit the charities and childrens homes that we represent. As an actress, writer and model it has given me more chances to open more doors than I would have without them.
BMW: You also seem to be involved in a lot of charity organizations in Africa...
Vicky: My Role is to represent these charity organisations that are a combination of Charities that the title Miss East Africa holds as well as my own organisations that I have fallen in love with like Shikuku Shining Stars of Tomorrow who nurture the talent of beautiful orphaned children and Hope for the Children who are based in west of Kenya. Now, representing can be from bringing awareness about them at events to fund raising for them. I would like to and will do more, I just have to do the ground work. The way I see it the Greater I get the Greater I can give.
BMW: What have you found to be your greatest asset when it comes to modeling and what types of gigs have you been getting over others?
Vicky: My greatest asset, hmm, let me thing... My presence on stage, with pictures my visual creativity with my enviroment and the camera.
BMW: Tell us about being 'Exquisite Face' of Exquisite Face of the Universe.
Vicky: Exquisite Face of the Universe is a modelling/beauty pageant with girls representing from all around the world. I was awarded Exquisite 'most beautiful' face. It's great for modelling to have such a title and it's empowering because I remember when I didn't feel beautiful. My daughters will have pressure... joke!
BMW: What else have you accomplished so far in your modeling career?
Vicky: I didn't purposley set out to have a modeling career. It was always a dream. However I am an actress and a writer but I love the camera anyhow. Put me infront of the lense and ill give you what you want ;-)
