What if YOU won the genetic lottery?

Would you be as happy as you THINK you’d be?!  I mean come on…the genetic lottery, you could walk the runways and be a model!  OR, believe it or not, by being a supermodel, you would officially be in a club of some of the most insecure women in the world.

Meet Cameron Russell.  I just love this girl after learning more about her!  She is an Ivy League graduate.  She studied Economics and Political Science from Columbia University.  And yes, she is a Victoria’s Secret model who has also done modeling for other well-known labels like Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein.  And see…you just judged her, right?!  We automatically hear Victoria’s Secret model and get a preconceived notion. Don’t judge just yet…She is SO much more than a pretty face.  You have to check out her Ted Talk.  It’s amazing to see the before and after photos of her as a regular girl, on the same day as major photo shoot.  It doesn’t even look like her!  This goes to prove that the models we see in magazines are truly just a base used to construct the false reality they want to sell in the magazines.

Cameron is shedding some light into the modeling and beauty industry.  Take the time to watch the next two videos…and learn how an “image is superficial”.

“Fearless is being honest.”

-Cameron Russell

The Ted Talk is my favorite!
