The 22 years old beauty model allegedly declined the offered.
According to Hot in Juba, Florence said the offered came in a day after being crowned to represent South Sudan in miss world.
“Modelling is nice, the designer’s clothes, the attention but there is the other side to modeling.” She told Hot in Juba.
“I care about my dignity, something my father taught me as a child. So, I take this thing seriously,” she added.
The model who is currently a student at Cavendish University believe the modelling industry is shaded with “exploitation, hate, and sexual abuse” by businessmen and agents.
“The way people at modeling in South Sudan, I suffered. I go through hell when I was crowned. People think maybe we are sex objects. This hurt me. I didn’t like it.”

Florence pleas to the government to protect girls from “sex-starved” predator men with chunk of monies at their disposal.
