She’s a wildly successful model who boasts millions of followers on social media.
And Gigi Hadid is well-aware of the influence she holds online – and is careful about how she wields it.
The 22-year-old, who has been named one of Glamour’s Women Of The Year, explained to the magazine how she uses her platform – and why she’s no ordinary ‘all American girl.’
‘I want to be the person who always uses my platform to share what I’m passionate about, but it’s also scary and something I’ve learned to be cautious about,’ she told the magazine for their Women Of The Year issue.
Gigi has catapulted to fame ever since beginning a career in model as just a child.
But the model says she’s found she was quickly branded the ‘all American’ girl, even though she was comes from a multi-cultural background.
‘When I started working in fashion, it was like, “Gigi, the all-American.” I was very much that “girl next door,”‘ said Gigi, ‘but if you read my interviews, I always talk about my parents’ cultural backgrounds.’
