Model Achieng Agutu is Stepping into Her “Grounded Era”

Blogger and model Achieng Agutu no longer lives within societal confines. The self-proclaimed “Confidence Queen” talks to Ashley about learning to love herself and confidently step into her power. As a child growing up in Kisumu, Kenya, Achieng knew all about the unwritten rules dictating how women in that society should behave. But as she grew older, she discovered existing within those margins would restrict her from a life worth living. Achieng later determined her confidence couldn’t come from her relationships nor the opinions of others; it had to stem from within. Today at 27 years old, Achieng practices radical self-acceptance and embraces herself fully knowing that life must be lived on her own terms.
