I absolutely love Alek Wek. She is gorgeously and stunningly beautiful. The influential magazine, I:D has dubbed her ‘Model of the Decade’. She has also been listed as one of the ’50 Most Beautiful People’ by US’s People magazine. She is a former refugee from Sudan who passionately advocates for refugee rights.
She has always remained grounded. This is as a result of her mum’s wise words when she was growing up. ” From a very early age, my mother embedded in us that as a woman it is not the makeup, the dress or the shoes that makes you the woman that you are, it’s truly who you are inside”.
Those are wise words.
