When asked if she could change only one aspect of the fashion industry what it would be, she replied:

“I would change the separationist mentality of the industry, especially at editorial and campaign level. I see no reason why size or color should be a barrier against a model booking a high level editorial or a big campaign.”

Give her a medal already!
