With an Instagram following that keeps growing and a grid full of high fashion gigs, there’s no doubt that Efosa Uwubamwen is booked and busy. A British-Nigerian doctor-turned-model who hails from Manchester is taking on entrepreneurship with health as his top priority. Thanks to a medical degree from Masaryk University, Efosa has been able to balance modeling, a social life, and school while traveling all over the world and studying for exams.
Now he’s a full-time model, living in New York and in the initial stages of starting a creative health collective aimed at combating misinformation and making well-being plans direct and easy to digest.
“Everyone wants to be healthy, but a lot of people have no idea where to start. Often, they just end up trying out whatever random diet or crazy workout plan they happen to stumble across on Instagram that day and trying it until they get bored or can’t keep up. And I get it, after all that was all of us at one point, it can be very confusing and expensive to start on a health journey for someone that doesn’t have a background in health/doesn’t have the time to do the research,” Efosa says before taking another bite of sushi at his favorite NYC restaurant. “I want to create a platform that is honest and helps people treat health as an everyday lifestyle and not something you do in small bursts or more so, give up easily.”
Starting each day with a routine that he’s created from studying medicine along with years of tweaking and adjusting, combined with the fitness plan he uses to maintain his model physique, Efosa, has managed to keep stress to a minimum while living a balanced life in arguably the busiest city in the world.
