Liya Kebede possesses a serene grace which seems to separate her from other models.
Kebede was appointed to The World Health Organization's Goodwill for Maternal Newborn and Child Health in 2005 and soon founded the Liya Kebede Foundation for a similar mission. Most recently named to Time Magazines 100 Most Influential People in the World and recognized as "Young Global Leader" by The World Economic Forum, Liya Kebede is an inspiration.
While my daughter was growing up, I made sure that she always saw positive images of black women and made it a priority.
Among other things I raised her to understand that beyond learning to be confident and to appreciate the beauty of her skin, ultimately it's about what's beneath the surface; brains, character and intelligence to name a few primary attributes.
Liya Kebede exudes all of this and more.
