Your life is your runway
We are a global community of women who come together to learn, grow, attain their highest aspirations, and to leave a grand legacy for their posterity. At Mommy Supermodel, we partner with you to help you become your own supermodel, to become that person you admire, who is a role model in their family, community, workplace and in society at large. Ours is a very supportive community whose main goal is the success and fulfillment of its members.
Our slogan is: “Your Life is Your Runway!”. We believe that we’re all strutting our stuff, just like supermodels strut their stuff on fashion runways. But the distinction is that a Mommy Supermodel only struts her beliefs, hopes and dreams, and these aspirations can be seen in her life. You can tell what a Mommy Supermodel believes, by what she does. She lives by action, and on the runway of her life, she daily struts courage, strength, inspiration, leadership, visionary and innovative ideas, and bold action. Her life is her runway, and you can see what is important to her, on the runway of her life!
The name “Mommy Supermodel” is a play on words. We are not about fashion. Our mission is about modeling honorable character, about modeling good examples to our children, to teach by example, the importance of 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. The Mommy Supermodel organization is dedicated to helping you live life as a Mommy Supermodel.
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 invests the best of herself in others. Children, generations, multitudes will arise and call her blessed! Future generations will be buoyed up by the works of a Mommy Supermodel, for she is an asset to her community, a rising tide that will help generations to soar, based on the solid foundation of the good works that she did. And her works will speak for themselves!
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, and a Master of Communications from Syracuse University (Newhouse), New York. I have worked in the Information Technology, Business, and Media sectors.
I am an avid reader who loves business, technology, fitness, literature, history, religion, and fashion. I am a wife and mother of four children. I am a woman in her mid 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, and 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 inspire 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)
But our fondest specialty is helping you strengthen your inner man; to be courageously live the life that you’ve been assigned to live and to model for generations to come. We’d be honored to walk this journey with you. Join us today! sign up here: Mommy Supermodel Chapters – Mommy Supermodel
