Akothee’s runway model of a daughter, Rue Baby’s modelling career has been quite impressive fact that she grew aspiring to be a lawyer, until after high school when she got mentored into the fashion industry.

All this came to light after Kenya’s transgender fashion icon, Letoya Johnston saw something in Rue and decided to push her to become a model, her height, melanin and body size are a straight ticket for her to grace the runway.

In an interview on chatspot Rue revealed;

“I tried Face of Nivea, and to my surprise, I won. I wasn’t even sure I would win, but then I tried, and I got it. So that’s when it struck me that fashion is my thing. I went for my first runway, never tripped, and that’s how I loved modelling.”

She eventually got to be a competitor on Miss Universe Kenya 2019 beauty pageant up against competitors who were as good in the game, that left Rue with cold feet.

“When it got to top 3, to some point, I was confident I would win it, but then I also started getting worried. But I held on.”

Eventually, Stacy Michuki and Rue Baby were the ones left. That might have sounded like a moment of fame to many, but not for Rue, all eyes on her, the stage is quiet, and there are only two of them left.

Rue went ahead;

I was like “please just get over and done with the announcement, fortunately, we had already been prepared just in case we did not win.”

Stacy was then declared the winner, and it broke down Rue Baby.

“I felt disappointed, it hurt me, but I had to keep a brave face and not show my tears. I had to hug Stacy, wish her all the best and then parte after parte.”
