Tyra Banks was the first African American model to grace the cover of GQ and Sports Illustrated magazine.

When told from the young age of 15 that she couldn’t do anything she wanted to achieve because she was black, she never gave up.

She always trusted her instincts and took the risks necessary to take her business to the next level. Expanding the definition of beauty was always the goal for her brand and she continues to work hard at discovering new ways to do that.

Always make a negative into a positive situation by finding a way to get it done. Think about your legacy in every move that you make.

Do what you are passionate about and always think ahead towards achieving it in a big way. Sometimes taking huge risks can be frightening but they can make things really happen.

Proving yourself with hard work takes alot of confidence.
