Originally from Leeds of Nigerian and British decent, Kirby had a strong drive for sport. Previously three-times Yorkshire Champion and runner-up in the long jump, she specialises in athletics; a keen sprinter but more recently taking on longer runs. As well as being a qualified personal trainer, training to teach spin, HIIT and TRX, she is also able to ski, ice-skate, box, surf and play netball. Anything high intensity is Kirby’s forte.
Currently based in London, Kirby studied Fashion Management at London College of Fashion before graduating to a career in the industry. It was here that she started her blog Tigeress Lifestyle, to follow her fitness, health and fashion journey. This led to her being scouted for a global sporting TV commercial and signing to model agencies in London and Paris. Now modelling and blogging full time, she has a global audience of health-conscious individuals following her blog, YouTube channel and Instagram where she posts fun workouts, health tips and style advice. Kirby has also collaborated with some of the leading sports, lifestyle and fashion brands.
