ImmieT The Story
Immie T , originally Ijang Immaculate was born in the North of Uganda, moving to Kampala to attend senior school . As a child Immie always wanted to be a model and enjoy the glamour of the catwalk ! This was later to become a way of her financing her studies at Makere University . Immie needed to do something different so in 2015 decided to give Miss Uganda a try , to this day she cannot believe she made it to the finals , but she did !
During this same period Immie decided to try her hand at acting and appeared in a short film in 2015 called 'Silent Depression', though she admits that acting was never really her thing.
After becoming disillusioned with modelling and finding some of the demands were beyond what she expected Immie decided to study to be a makeup artist with colleges in the UK and USA and that brings us to ImmieT .
