The name “Mommy Supermodel” is a play on words. We are not about fashion, although like most people, we do like to look good. But our mission is about modeling honorable character, about modeling good examples to our children, about the growth, maturity and strengthening of the human spirit. As parents (mom and dad) we are our child(ren)’s first hero. We are the first and most important role models in their young and impressionable lives.
Mommy Supermodel is an exemplar, a woman whose price is far above rubies, a woman who is both a pillar of strength and wisdom in her household, her community, nation and the world. This woman’s children will arise and call her blessed!
About the founder
Hello. My name is Grace Nkechi Okoro-Akyeampong. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Systems and Computer Sciences from Howard University in Washington, DC. I have also taken some advanced studies courses in Business, Finance and Accounting. I am an avid reader who loves business, technology, fitness, literature, history, religion, and fashion. I am a Christian and all our teachings and coaching wisdom are based on the Bible, the life-giving, inerrant and infallible Word of God.
I am a wife and mother of four children. I am a woman in her early forties who knows what it means to battle with the changes your body goes through, from child birth to sickness and injury. I know what it means to fight your way back through a daunting challenge. I have been a working professional, a student-mom, a stay-at-home mom and an entrepreneur. Sometimes I have worn a few of those hats simultaneously. I know how to fight, to be an under dog, and to win. I understand resilience. I am very conversant with hard work, and grit and commitment, and self-discipline.
I came to the United States many years ago, with only $25.00 in my pocket. I knew NOBODY in the United States at the time. Not a soul! I was young, full of hope and dreams of a brighter future. I arrived determined to work hard; and work hard I have.
God has been very good to me and has blessed me immeasurably. I am very thankful to God and my family and friends, and to this beautiful and mighty nation that I call home.
But truth be told, it has not been a smooth sailing journey. There have been some very difficult challenges along the way, and I have learned some invaluable lessons through those trials and tribulations. I am glad to say that I have triumphed over every single one of those battles. This is a statement of faith and gratitude to God. Not one of pride.
The knowledge I gained in those trials has strengthened me and equipped me to deal with whatever life throws or will throw my way. I am grateful for each and every lesson, for every opportunity to grow and develop, and to wholeheartedly pursue the assignment that God has given me. I can do ALL things through CHRIST who gives me strength (Philippians 4:13).
I am glad to have the privilege to share some of these lessons with you, to coach and support you, so that you can obtain your own victories, too.
I love fitness! I love to exercise, to get my body fit and strong, so that I can keep up with my children and all the many responsibilities that we as parents have to handle daily. I also cherish the excellent quality of life that comes from a disciplined lifestyle of exercise/fitness. But what I love more is helping people attain and retain their own fit and healthy lifestyle. For many years, I worked as a fitness instructor in a gym setting as well as offering private fitness lessons. I am also a Taekwondo Black belt (my children are too). My areas of expertise are strength training and cardiovascular conditioning for weight loss, strength, toning, weight maintenance, overall wellness and self-defense. ( See our fitness and self-defense pages)
I am also a writer and speaker. All my teachings are based on the Bible and other real life examples in business, health, history, literature, contemporary affairs, etc. Find and like us on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/mommysupermodel
