“I’m starting as a freshman at Gallatin (NYU’s Independent Study Program). The more I travel, the more I realize I have so much to learn about the world. I’m such a nerd about science and math, did you know that? And history, culture, languages… Traveling so much has made me realize, I have to invest in myself. And that’s what education is, I think: a great investment in me. And I need to find a balance between that and my career, so that’s my project for fall.”
Then she was asked what she wanted to be when she grew up! hahaha
“Oh! I’m going to continue working as a model. I want to do it all! And I think it’s possible to keep working while you go to school. Christy Turlington did it. Natalie Portman did it. Emma Watson just did it! And those are just women in the public eye, but plenty of others do it, too. You know women around the world are great at multitasking. We do it well.
I’ve grown up doing the shows, in a sense. I like being a part of the shows, the adrenaline, and seeing the collections before anyone else does, wearing them before anyone else, knowing I’m part of a designer’s vision - I really enjoy that… But it’s such a part of my year now, walking spring and fall. Maybe I wouldn’t know what to do with myself if I didn’t do the runways!”
