Ghanaian Celebrity | Hairstylist | Runway Beauty Artist | Model
My name is ALEX VINYO MAWULORM, born on June 18, 1999. I am a young Ghanaian celebrity, hairstylist, runway beauty artist, and photo model. Despite not having been to school before, I have a big dream to become a great beauty star.
Growing up, I often accompanied my grandma to the market and assisted her in selling her food. I owe a greater part of my success to my grandma, who unfortunately passed away (Rest in Peace). However, as a male hairstylist, I faced a lot of discrimination and insults due to societal beliefs. It was not an easy journey, but I persevered and used those challenges to become a better version of myself. Through hard work and dedication, I have built a name for myself in the beauty industry, and I am grateful for every opportunity that has come my way. I continue to learn and improve my skills every day, and I hope to inspire others to pursue their dreams no matter how challenging the journey may seem.
What were the biggest initial hurdles you faced and how did you overcome them?
I am finally becoming the person that I have always prayed and hoped for, the person that I had to fight hard to become, the person that I allowed myself to go through hardships for.
One thing I have learned in this journey of life is that when the timing is not right, sacrificing your loved ones won't make things go your way. Forcing your way through will only give you a small fraction of what you desire, and the rest will be problems and no joy. It's important to trust the process, have patience, and keep pushing towards your goals. With hard work, determination, and faith, everything will eventually fall into place.
What advice do you have for young people locally and internationally who are just starting out in their careers or pursuing their passions?
I just wish I had known this earlier. I wish I had someone to tell me to slow down and enjoy my childhood. I grew up too quickly, and I wish someone had told me to hustle while trusting God's process. This advice could have saved me from all the risks I'm dealing with and will have to deal with for the rest of my life if a miracle doesn't intervene.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my story. I am humbled.
