Linda – The Beauty Queen From Mali
Linda Tatiene Sanogo started professional modelling at the age of 17. She was born in Denmark and has lived in Niger for about 6 years. Originally of mixed heritage ‘Half Malian and Half Danish – Malian father and Danish mother ‘, Linda won the Miss Mali 2010 Beauty Contest and went on to represent her country in Turkey, Poland, Dominican Republic and South Korea. She loves music, dance and art. One of her goals is to study social psychiatry to be able to help the mental wellbeing of women and children all over Africa.
Even though she has been modelling for almost 6 years, Linda still gets excited with every new job she gets. She loves the challenge in modelling and loves runway jobs. Aside from modelling, she is also into the film and theatre industry and has featured in a few TV-series, movies and theatre.
Linda’s best feature is her hair as she says ‘if I cut it short I might as well leave the business’
