South Sudanese-Australian Model Adut Akech Gives A Tour Of Her Los Angeles Home

Born in South Sudan, raised in Kenya, and settled in Australia as a South Sudanese refugee, model Adut Akech has had quite a life, at just 21 years of age. After moving to Adelaide, Australia, with her mom and five siblings, Akech started going by the name “Mary.” This decision was made in order to ensure that her Australian teachers could pronounce her name. But when she started modeling, at age 16, she went back to her birth name, Adut.

Upon being selected by the fashion power house Saint Laurent, Akech’s career started to skyrocket. She was booked by Elite Model Management in Paris and the rest is history. Her rise has included being one of the chosen few to debut on the cover of British Vogue and has since graced the covers of Vogue Italia, Vogue Australia and most recently, Vogue Hong Kong.

As a highly coveted model, Akech’s success has blossomed. In a post she wrote on Instagram, she shares,

I DID IT, I BOUGHT MY FIRST HOUSE in America!!!!! 🥺🥺🥺🥺

I’m usually quiet about personal things like this, I just be moving in silence but this one is TOO big of an achievement and proud moment for me to not share with the world. I cannot believe that at 21 years old I’m a proud owner of 5 HOUSES!!! 🤯
I sit back reflect on my life and the things I have achieved within my career and personal life…. and damn I’m so bloody PROUD of myself for staying focused and working my ass off to get here.
I remind myself every single day how extremely BLESSED and FORTUNATE I am and for that I’m beyond GRATEFUL to God, my family, to the people in my life that courage me to keep pushing. To the people who have given me the opportunities that have led to moments like this. I’m grateful to my supporters who motivate me everyday. THANK YOU!!!! 🙏🏾❤️❤️❤️
Cheers to New Beginnings!!! 🍾🎊

My new house in LA, I worked so hard for this and I’m so proud of myself. Grateful for all I have and I’m counting my blessings every single day.

The furniture in the house is staging and isn’t mine but I’m so excited to decorate 🙌🏿😍

In Akech’s words, this is a blessing, indeed.
