EDUCATION PROVIDER AND MODEL EMPOWERING UNDERPRIVILEGED TANZANIAN GIRLS.
Flaviana Matata - Shop The Look

Born and raised in Tanzania, Flaviana graduated from Arusha Technical college in Arusha-Tanzani with a degree in electrical engineering. Her modeling career kicked off in 2010 when she was scouted in New York while attending a charity event. Since being connected with modeling agencies in the U.S., Flaviana has been named one of Essence Magazine’s Breakout Models of the Year, and in 2011, she took home the Model of the Year title at Arise Magazine Fashion Week in Lagos, Nigeria. She was also named one of 2014’s Most Influential People in Africa by New African Magazine, one of the Top 10 African Models by Forbes Africa, one of the Top 10 Black Models by Models and Moguls, and one of the Most Influential Icons in Contemporary African Pop Culture by Africa.com.

Flaviana has walked the runway for major brands and designers, and graced the pages of countless magazines, but one of her true passions is giving back. Flaviana has a lengthy list of philanthropic ventures, including her Flaviana Matata Foundation, which empowers young girls in Tanzania through education. She is an Angel Ambassador of the Diamond Empowerment Fund and has worked as a Goodwill Ambassador for Tanzanian charity Mitindo House. She’s also worked with Life project for Africa, Malaika for Life, Usher New Look, Malaria No More, SOS Village and the Hassan Maajar Trust.

Flaviana is also a successful businesswoman. She is the founder of Lavy Products, a line of non-toxic, cruelty-free nail polish that’s available in more than 60 stores in six countries.

Flaviana currently lives in New York City.

“Imagine a girl who went to school and a girl who didn’t go to school. How would they raise their kids? It will help the community to have better mothers, which means we will have better generations.” –FLAVIANA MATATA
