    Adwoa Aboah is hoping for more "confidence" in her 30s after achieving sobriety

    The fashion model - who has graced the covers of Vogue and worked with top brands such as Calvin Klein and Fendi - celebrated the milestone birthday last month and admitted she has seen a lot of her friends experience a confidence shift when they turned 30, and she's eager to do the same

    2 July 2022
    She said: "I'm looking forward to the self-confidence [of being in my 30s]. There's definitely a new air to a lot of my female friends that have turned 30 - they stand taller."

    The star - who was named BFC Model of the Year in 2017 - struggled with addiction during her teen years but has been sober since the age of 22 and has now founded nonprofit organisation Gurls Talk to help young women tackle various issues.

    The organisation - which is a combination of live events and an online community - has so far initiated conversations regarding tough issues such as rape culture, sobriety and Adwoa described it as "humbling" to be able to lead the way.

    She told GQ magazine: "I've always wanted Gurls Talk to be a comfort blanket that follows you from one stage of your life to the next. It can't stop life from 'lifeing' but it can act as a gatekeeper to the never-ending noise."

    Adwoa added that all the "best moments" of her life have come as she has matured and even though she has had to "fight" for them, it was all been "worth it."

    She said: "All my best moments in life have come later on. The good sex, the love, the amazing friendships, the good dancing, the experiences, the relationship I have with my parents, the career, the discomfort, coming through the discomfort all those experiences have come later.

    "I had to really fight to get there, but it was completely worth it!"
