There are so many beautiful young mothers at the moment and since we’re trying to add a segment written by a young mother ( Email us if you would like to be part of the team ) it was only right we asked one young mother a few questions on motherhood and her career.
Jocelyne Maro is a mother,wife,model , career woman and former Miss East Africa 2012/2013 and through out a hard working queen. When i sent her a direct message asking for an interview she was so kind and open to one and i was delighted to hear what she had to share with us. The interview was done via email , i hope the advice she gave out and her answers will get to inspire or in one way or the other speak to another woman.

How/ When did you come up with the decision that it’s the right time to have a child?
I always knew that I wanted to start a family young and I kept praying for that & for the right person to share that with. When I got pregnant, it was a very nice surprise! At first, I wasn’t fully mentally ready but as time went on and also because of the support I had I found myself getting more & more excited . I don’t believe that you can actively “plan” to have a child, only God can decide on the “right time“. Kids are a gift from God.
How do you manage being a mother , wife , model and your Day Job?
Balance and Top-Notch Planning.
What would your advise to young mothers be?
- Take it one step at a time, don’t panic
- If you need help, ASK for it.
- You might not be in love with your child immediately after you give birth, don’t be scared of that feeling instead speak to someone about it. It might be just a phase or it could be the symptoms of something more. Don’t be quiet.
Has been a mother changed your perspective about being a woman?
Yes. I realised that there are some strengths within me that I never knew existed.
Having a child can change your body has it affected your modelling career in any way?
No it hasn’t. I feel like my body has only gotten better
What are three words that best describe you?
Versatile, Polymath & Fun
