Renowned Ugandan model, socialite and philanthropist Doreen Kabareebe recently exchanged wedding vows with her American fiance in the US, leaving Uganda’s showbiz in a frenzy. We got an exclusive interview with her, to tell us about her path to the now-famous marriage.
“My name is Doreen Kabareebe. I run an online branding coach business called DK Branding Coach. I am the CEO of Kabareebe Models for Charity and I recently won the Miss World International Woman Title in Miami, Florida; in August 2023,” she says.
“I always wanted to get married to a good man; and of course not a Ugandan. Not in a bad way but maybe because I have grown up seeing several single mothers and for one reason I always believed Ugandan men are not serious; the good ones were already married. The available ones that I knew were not virtuous at all!” She reveals, in a rather humorous tone.
The model then told the tale of how she met her Prince Charming,
“I left Uganda to work in Dubai in 2014 after attaining my Master’s Degree in International Relations and Diplomacy. I wanted to go to a whole new environment. When I settled at work with Marriott International, I decided to get back into the modeling career. That is when a friend introduced me to Corey Harris, now my husband. He did part-time photography and he offered me free shoots every now and then he also connected me to the first modeling gig I had in Abu Dhabi. We became and have been friends for over eight years now. We always caught up whenever I went to Dubai; even after I resigned from my job. We decided to start dating last year. Click to read more…
