Nigerian writer and journalist Wana Udobang, fondly known as Wana Wana, recently posted her new headshots on social media and she looks absolutely fire!
Dressed in a navy blue blazer, Udobang gives off confident and professional vibes in her headshots. She pairs the business casual fit with some dangly earrings and red lips. For two of her headshots, she dons a pair of glasses and looks even more ready for the workplace!
Udobang shared the photos on social media, posting a tweet that said, “Took some headshots since i became bald. I swear I look like a startup/founder girlie.”
We are absolutely loving the new look for Wana Wana!
