Kelvin Ofori Danso | Ghana | Never Lose Sight Of Your Passion

Accessories & Unisex Fashion Designer

Aspiring Chef | Model & Model Trainer

Hello, I'm Kelvin Ofori Danso, also known as Kelly For/Tailormodel. I am a young Ghanaian accessories and unisex fashion designer, aspiring chef, model, and model trainer. Despite not being able to complete SHS, I have a big dream to become a great celebrity. My journey in life hasn't been easy. From being separated from my mother at a young age and growing up with my grandmother's support, I faced many challenges. With her guidance, I managed to complete high school and pursue my dreams. I have worked as a chef and even traveled to another country to work as a pizza chef. Along the way, I encountered discrimination and insults as a male model, but I used those challenges to become a better person. Through hard work, dedication, and faith, I have made a name for myself in the fashion industry. I am grateful for every opportunity that has come my way and I continue to learn and improve my skills. I hope to inspire others to pursue their dreams, no matter how challenging the journey may be. Looking back, I wish I had someone to advise me to slow down and enjoy my childhood, to hustle while trusting in God's process. It could have saved me from some of the difficulties I've faced. Nevertheless, I have learned to trust the process, have patience, and keep pushing towards my goals. I believe that with hard work, determination, and faith, everything will eventually fall into place.

What were the biggest initial hurdles you faced and how did you overcome them?

In my journey, I have faced significant initial hurdles. One of the biggest challenges was not being able to complete SHS (Senior High School). It felt like a setback, but I didn't let it define me or my dreams. I pushed forward with determination and a strong belief in myself.

Another hurdle I faced was the discrimination and insults as a male model. People had misconceptions about models, but I used those challenges as fuel to prove them wrong. I worked hard to build a name for myself in the fashion industry, showcasing my skills and talent. Throughout my life, I have also dealt with personal hardships and the constant need to prove myself. But I never gave up. With the unwavering support of my grandmother and my own resilience, I overcame these hurdles. I learned to trust the process and have patience. I embraced hard work, determination, and faith in myself and in God's plan. These qualities helped me overcome the obstacles and continue pursuing my dreams. It hasn't been an easy journey, but I am proud of how far I've come. I believe that every challenge I faced has shaped me into the person I am today. I am grateful for the lessons learned and the strength I gained along the way.

What advice would you offer to young individuals, both locally and internationally, who are embarking on their careers or pursuing their passions?

To all the young individuals out there embarking on their careers or pursuing their passions, I offer you this advice based on my own experiences:

First and foremost, believe in yourself and your abilities. Trust that you have what it takes to achieve your goals, no matter how big they may seem. Be confident in your unique talents and let them shine.

Embrace challenges and setbacks as opportunities for growth. It's natural to face obstacles along the way, but remember that they are not roadblocks but stepping stones. Learn from them, adapt, and keep moving forward with determination.

Stay focused and dedicated to your craft. Success rarely comes overnight, so be prepared to put in the time and effort required to hone your skills and improve. Consistency is key, so keep practicing, learning, and pushing yourself to reach new heights.

Seek guidance and mentorship. Surround yourself with individuals who inspire and support you. Look for mentors who can provide valuable insights and guidance in your chosen field. Their wisdom and experience can be invaluable in your journey.

Don't be afraid to take risks and step out of your comfort zone. Sometimes the greatest opportunities come from taking chances and exploring new avenues. Be open to new experiences, be curious, and be willing to learn from every opportunity that comes your way.

Lastly, never lose sight of your passion and the love for what you do. Stay true to yourself and your dreams, even in the face of adversity. Let your passion be the driving force behind your hard work and dedication.

Remember, success is not defined by others' expectations but by your own fulfillment and happiness. Believe in yourself, stay focused, keep pushing forward, and never give up on your dreams. With perseverance and a positive mindset, you can achieve incredible things.
