Oluchi Onweagba is a Nigerian supermodel, television personality, and entrepreneur. She is known for exposing the world to Africa as a source for supermodels. Not only is she beautiful, but she has brains as well. She graduated from New York University with a Bachelor's degree in management. Although it seems hard to believe given her supermodel career, Oluchi struggled with body image as a teenager. She always struggled with being underweight, but things took a turn when she was encouraged to try out for the "Nokia Face of Africa" competition. The judges loved her, and she won a $150,000 three year modeling contract with Elite Model Management. Oluchi moved to New York and her career skyrocketed. She worked with famous photographers such as Steven Meisel, Nick Knight, and David LaChapelle, and walked runways in Paris, Milan, and New York. She quickly rose to supermodel status, and in 2002 she became a member of the elite Victoria's Secret angels. In 2005 she married Italian Fashion designer Luca Orlandi and began a four year stint in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. She has since used her success to open a modeling agency in Africa to pay it forward for the next generation of aspiring African models.
