Australian-Sudanese model Ajak Deng has been predicted as the next supermodel five years after she fled her troubled African homeland with her family.
The 19-year-old refugee was said to be following in the footsteps of catwalk queen Naomi Campbell as she continues to leave her mark on the ramps.
“She is on her way to stardom,” the Daily Telegraph quoted Stephen Bucknell, manager of Deng’s modelling agency, FRM Model Management, as saying.
The African-Aussie stunner would soon adorn global newsstands as the latest face for the United Colours of Benetton campaign.
She is set to return Down Under in March for L’Oreal Fashion Week.
