Victoria José Profile
Name: Victoria José
Occupation: Student, model, businesswoman.
Victoria José have a passion for modeling from a young age but I’ve never found a modeling agency that wants to work with models in wheelchair in my country (Angola).
She believe that fashion is an identity of who you are.
The reason she don’t ever give up fighting for inclusion in the fashion world is because she want show the world that beauty has no limits.
Victoria José want to be able to influence and inspire other disabled people in Africa and point out some of the issues that affect the lives of disabled people in my country, some of these issues include lack of universal access in the structural buildings, high unemployment rate among persons with disabilities and other issues.
Victoria José want to show the world that beauty has no limits.
Massira Inclusive project is very beautiful as it introduces the fashion industry a new way of doing fashion. They brought to the runway different abled models walking and wheeling with so much glamour and grace..
Victoria José hope to one day empower other disabled people in my country through speech and actions.
Victoria José quote ”As Stephen Hawking once said:
“Concentrate on things your disability doesn’t prevent you doing well, and don’t regret the things it interferes with. Don’t be disabled in spirit as well as physically.”
”My name is Victoria, I am 25 years old and I am from Angola. I consider myself a very happy person because I honor the most three important things in life: God, family and friends. A good sense of humor plays a big role in my life as well, that’s why I can’t go day without making someone laugh or smile. My definition of a happy heart is a heart that cares for others and accept differences”.
