GiGi Hadid has taken America by storm and it isn’t hard to see why. The woman is gorgeous! Although she is being called America’s new “it” girl, GiGi, whose real name is Jelena Noura Hadid, has been modeling all of her life.
She started modelling with Baby Guess at only 2 years old, but stopped when she began school. GiGi returned to the modeling scene in a big way in February 2014 when she made her New York Fashion Week debut. Her career skyrocketed even more when she posed for Sports Illustrated, and landed the Victoria’s Secret runway show. But this girl is more than just a pretty face, she has a beautiful heart to match. For her 20th birthday, in lieu of presents, she asked to receive food gift cards to pass out to those in need of a meal in NYC.
Even with all the fame, GiGi is a down to earth chick. When asked how she gets through each day, she says that one’s easy: “Work hard, be nice and make a friend. Those are the three goals that stand out for me; the things I try to do that make a difference on a day-to-day basis.”
She says “surrounding yourself with people who are trying to pick you up rather than the opposite” leads to success.
Beauty, brains and heart, this girl is the full package!
