Biography: Ajak Deng may enjoy the life of a successful African model now, but that isn’t always where she saw herself in the future. In fact, Ajak is a former South Sudanese refugee who originally wanted to join the army until her career adviser said she should give modeling a try instead. She went home to her family, suddenly inspired to give modeling try, and took a two-week masterclass to learn how to walk in heels. She’s appeared in a variety of fashion magazines, including i-D, L’Officiel, but despite her success, she quit the industry due to discrimination and racism. However, she returned to modeling less than a week later after she began receiving messages from devastated fans.
