SC: Tell us a bit about yourself.
SC: What inspires you?
SC: Tell us the story behind your art.
MM: I believe every woman is beautiful. When I was interviewed by City TV before my TKFW runway show, they asked if I was nervous and I said “No, because I am brave and beautiful”. I then started an initiative making wish-let bracelets called “I AM BRAVE AND BEAUTIFUL”. They are to empower other girls to believe in themselves, and to pursue their own dreams. I donate some of the money to charity to help others.
