Millen Happiness Magese (NY)
Model & Humanitarian
Millen Happiness Magese is a world-renowned fashion model and humble humanitarian. When she’s not prowling runways in Europe, the United States, Asia and Africa, the former Miss Tanzania can often be found giving her time, talents, and energy to making a difference in the lives of those who are less fortunate through her significant contributions to charities such as the Tanzania Education Trust, African Rainforest Conservancy, and the MacDella Cooper Foundation. She has also established the Millen Magese Foundation to empower women and girls of Tanzania.
As a model, Magese is currently signed with Ford Models in New York, NY and Ice Model Management in Johannesburg, South Africa. She has been featured on numerous magazine covers in collaboration with many of the world’s top designers and brands. Her passion to give back to her home country Tanzania inspired her to bring her work back home and start the Millen Magese Foundation. Millen’s personal struggle with endometriosis motivated her to begin the foundation, which strives to promote gender equality and empower women and girls in Tanzania through improving access to education and reproductive health services.
