Model Moment: Ajak Deng


























Ajak Deng was born December 7, 1989 in Sudan and fled to a Kenyan refugee camp with her parents and four brothers and three sisters in 2003 after civil unrest erupted. During that time her mother passed away from malaria and she became the mother to her six month old sister. By 2005 her family was given the opportunity to move to Australia, Ajak has not looked back. Ajak quickly began to model and made her debut at the 2008 Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, since than she has been in high demand in Australia and abroad. She is currently represented by Chic Management.

Currently, Ajak is in school studying for her VCE (Victorian Certificate of Education).

I am so inspired by this young woman, she is truly blessed and I definitely see amazing things to come from her in the fashion world and beyond. To see more of Ajak click here.

I used Ajak for a shoot in February 2009 - the last two images above. She was such a natural and the photographer and I knew she would be a big star and I am so pleased to see that she is doing so well. You can see other beautiful shots of her on my website karabaker.com
