Mukisa's is many things, and we're for her celebrating this. We asked her to share a few of the things she's really proud of, and the many things that make her, her.
I am confident
It’s safe to safe I haven’t always been confident in fact growing up I was really shy and struggled with the way I looked and felt about myself. However, I’ve finally reached the point where I can truely and unapologetically say that I am confident within myself, my skin and my body!
I am creative
Alongside being a model I’m also an artist which has helped me become a lot more adventurous with my creativity. I’m able to express myself through my paintings which is something I’m not only proud of but also grateful for.
I am powerful
I consider myself powerful because I know my worth, I’m confident within myself and I’m capable of anything and everything I put my mind to.

Your ultimate creature comfort…
Is treating myself with a bath after a long day
The best way to start your day is….
Going on a coastal walk with a cup of coffee in one hand and a yoga mat in the other
Favorite things about yourself are…
My strength & resilience, loyalty, the the ability to make the most out of what life throws at you, finding fulfillment in nature, sense of humor, passion & courage
Anna is a model and a wildlife photographer, and so many things more. We asked her to share all the parts of her you might not always see, in all of her messy glory.
I am… Sassy
Being confident is being unapologetically yourself and not being afraid of judgment. I find that judgment form others will always be there one way or another, so why care so much? You be you :)
I am … Resilient
I became resilient at a very young age in ballet school. Those school years taught me how to stay mentally strong, how to overcome setbacks and how to constructively take criticism & comparison. Later in life, I found it extremely helpful in my modeling career
I am … Passionate
I’m very passionate about wildlife, especially birds. Birds are usually a good indicator of a healthy ecosystem and my goal is to spread awareness through my photography. I hope to inspire others to take a closer look at what’s flying around us and how it affects us.
I am… Spiritual
I practice mindfulness and I’m a firm believer of karma. My spirituality definitely extends to practicing healthy Self-love - you can be of service and give more to others if you take care of your own needs in a healthy way and not sacrifice your physical and emotional well-being to please others. True happiness comes from within and it’s not dependent on material things
I am… Brave
I’m not afraid to take risks in order to follow my dreams (and neither should You!). Life is too short to settle for mediocrity and wonder “what if…?”. When I started modeling I really wanted to move to NYC and all of the odds seemed to be against me at the time. Eventually I moved to the Big Apple all on my own, which was a scary experience but it forced me to grow as a person and evolve. And isn’t that the goal? I Find that sometimes the beauty and growth lies in the unknown
I am… A Queen
I had a long journey to self acceptance that steered from other people telling me how to be, what to do and what to say. Now, I am proud of my journey and I am proud of being unapologetically myself.
