Here is what she said;

“As a woman compared to a man I have more options to get more jobs than a man.

I can advertise hair, wigs, shoes and a wide range of clothes from brands which most men cannot.

The ratio of men to women is 1:3 which makes the market wider for us.

“I’ve become a brand ambassador to skincare brands and that’s an industry that men don’t dominate and conquer so this is how women are more successful.

Women have more opportunities to make money.”
