Priscilla Dwomoh
Naturalista of the Week

Who is Priscilla?

Priscilla Dwomoh was born in Ghana then relocated to Botswana at the age of nine, where she lived for a few years. She eventually immigrated to the United States. She kickstarted her modeling career in 2010 in Ohio. She saw it as a means of turning the negativity of bullying she endured at the hands of classmates who often said her dark skin and defined cheekbones were “ugly.”

While there, she worked on print, runway, and showroom projects, including a P&G commercial featured in their South Korea market. She also walked the runways of Columbus Fashion Week, Saks Fifth Avenue, Jinny Boutique and Charles Penzone. Additionally, Priscilla has shot fashion lookbooks for international design brands such as Legair Brand Fashion by Arthlene Legair. She has also worked with Althea Harper from Project Runway. 

She was recently featured in a spread in Essence Magazine and has signed with international fashion agency, Sigal Models, based in Columbus, Ohio.

When she is off duty from modeling, she spends her time advocating for the improvement of education in destitute communities in Africa through the non-profit organization, Looks For Books. She also uses her free time to volunteer with several organizations and churches that help the homeless and reduce poverty, through online portals such as New York Cares and Volunteers of America.

How long have you been natural?

A year now

Why did you decide to go natural?

Decided to go natural because my relaxed hair was weak and breaking, it looked unhealthy, the natural hair is easy to manage too. My hair is naturally very soft so I can wear it either curly or straight.

What is your fave styling product?

Bantu knots. They are easy and quick for me.
