After finishing her studies in Business Management, Noella entered the world of modelling.

Fiercely proud of her African heritage, her determination to help improve the lives of Africa’s youth has made her an international advocate for girls’ education.
In 2007, fuelled by her personal commitment, Noella founded Malaika. Today, Malaika’s education and health programs are impacting thousands of people’s lives in the village of Kalebuka and are all offered free of charge. Malaika’s work has three components: an accredited school that provides a quality education to 314 girls; a community center that offers a range of programs to 7,000 youth and adults annually; and, a clean water program that has built and refurbished 17 wells to supply fresh water to over 30,000 people each year. Crucially, Malaika’s community-driven approach acts as a model that can be replicated on a global scale in communities around the world.
Since 2017, Noella has served as an Ambassador for The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria. She also continues her work as a model, representing MAX FACTOR and Black Opal, among other brands. In January 2019, Noella collaborated with fashion designer Roksanda and THE OUTNET to launch an exclusive clothing collection, with proceeds going towards Malaika.
As a passionate advocate for girls’ education across the globe, Noella has shared her insight and perspective at a number of world-class forums spanning the Clinton Global Initiative and the World Economic Forum in Davos to the halls of both Cambridge and Oxford Universities, the offices of UNICEF, and in front of global corporations. In 2017, she was named one of the BBC’s 100 Most Influential and Inspirational Women of the Year. More recently, Noella received an award from the House of Mandela at the Nelson Mandela centenary celebration, recognizing her work with Malaika. She also delivered a keynote speech at the 2019 Forbes Leading Women Summit in Durban, South Africa for International Women’s Day.
