If I feel frustrated in a situation, I take a deep breath and walk away.
I believe in glamour. I am in favor of a little vanity. I don't rely on just my genes. Looking good is a commitment to yourself and to others.
We grew up as poor people but we never knew poverty. I still love and miss the Somalia I grew up in. Things changed, when my father became a diplomat later on.
Your image as a model is your currency. That's the only thing you've got. No one cares what you look like in real life. Nobody is going to say the make up guy was terrible. They will say, you look awful and let's not book her again.
I vowed to myself when I got married that I would cook every night. I find it very therapeutic.
At the end of the day, a 34B doesn’t give you self-esteem.
