Let face it, walking in 6inch killer heels may look sophisticated but it’s definitely not an easy task, it can be daunting, especially for a beginner – some mastery is required.
And that’s where Nivea Debra comes in.
Tell us about yourself

What inspired you to get into training?
I’ve always wanted to become a trainer even before I started
I officially launched my catwalk training in 2018 at Maseno University, where I was a student and one year down the I have mentored and taught about 100 models. I have been to various counties training models and I’m now settled in Nairobi where I hold my catwalk training every weekend at Maxfit Gym, Roysambu.
What do you love most about your work?
Watching a model come from not knowing how to even stand on heels to seeing them glide effortlessly with heels makes me really happy and proud! The level of confidence they attain once they’ve mastered the art is so amazing!
Where do you see yourself in the next five years
I’m looking forward to being one of the most sought out catwalk coaches in the world! I already have models from international agencies training with me – I believe that’s a good sign! A dream that started in Maseno, got nurtured in Kisumu, and now in Nairobi! I’m soon going global! So help me God! In the next 5 years, I’m hoping to be bigger than I am now, I’m looking forward to being recognized as a catwalk coach in Africa and the world!
What’s your mantra?
Remember why you started and keep the dream alive!
