Top models support foster girls
The Lions Model Management and Select World teamed up to create a #campaign and day of empowerment in support of Project Glimmer and its community partner Ticket to Dream.
On hand to offer guidance were three women represented by The Lions Model Management: Victoria’s Secret #model and Muay Thai fighter Gracie Carvalho, Calvin Klein model and activist Ebonee Davis and Stella McCartney model Kenya Kinski-Jones, daughter of music producer Quincy Jones. All are women of color succeeding in a Eurocentric industry.
"It was important to create a campaign that would garner awareness and result in a variety of shareable assets for Project Glimmer. We wanted to give all involved parties a voice and a platform to inspire others by promoting the initiative," said Sabrina Yu, managing director, New York at Select World. "Seeing how genuinely inspired and energized these graduates were and what impact this day of empowerment had on them reaffirmed how important it is to support our young women."
