Being born to Ugandan parents, strong values and morals were instilled in her at a 

very young age. Growing up, being a fashion model was not something that she 

dreamed of becomingas she was lead to believe by society that only tall and slim 

women could model. Unexpectedly, during her sophomore year of college at the 

University of South Florida while majoring in Economics, she caught the eye of a 

fashion stylist and her life went in a new direction. 

Hope Kiriisa’s true passion is creating music and acting, which has landed her 

several roles in commercials with high aspirations of taking her talents to the big 

screen. In the mean time, she is pushing the boundaries of her modeling career 

The enthusiasm and fire that she has for uplifting inner city youth is one like no 

other. Hope has been a role model, mentor, and big sister to teenagers and young 

girls for the past nine years, speaking at Teen Summits, Women Empowerment 

Conferences, and various community events. Leading and inspiring teenage girls is 

the most rewarding of anything she does.

“Life has opened my mind to many things which reflect in my words, pictures, music, and most importantly, my soul.”
