Victoria's Secret model, Cameron Russell has given an inspiring talk urging young people to be more "comfortable acknowledging the power of image in our perceived successes and failures".
The 25-year-old believes she became a top-model because she won the 'genetic lottery' and is now 'cashing out' on it. Many young women today want to have flawless skin, shiny hair, and lean legs- everything that we perceive as 'beautiful' in society.
Cameron has posed for the likes of Armani, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Yves Saint Laurent, but admits: "The thing that I have never said on camera is that I am insecure, and I am insecure, because I have to think about what I look like every day.
If you ever think, 'If I had thinner thighs and shinier hair, wouldn't I be happier,' you just need to meet a group of models. They have the thinnest thighs and the shiniest hair and the coolest clothes and they are the most physically insecure women, probably, on the planet."
