Signed to Chic Management Sydney, this South Sudanese-Australian model who stands at nearly 6ft is definitely one to watch in 2014. Yaya Deng was one of the 12 finalists on season one of the Australian segment of model search reality TV show ‘The Face’ hosted by Naomi Campbell.
The 19-year-old model was born in Kenya and but left at age eight with her family to relocate to Australia. Deng is currently studying a Bachelor of Arts and Science at Sydney University
Yaya Deng is definitely a face to watch this year and is set to make her acting debut alongside Gerrard Butler and Geoffrey Rush in Summit Entertainment’s Feature Film “God’s Of Egypt” directed by Alex Proyas.
