Some suggestions for you :

I became a victim of mean girls. I became the victim of myself.

'America's Next Top Model' is not a bunch of Barbies - it's a lot of girls that are atypically beautiful.

There's no excuse for rudeness.

I was always a good student. I wasn't the A-plus student, but I studied really hard, and I probably had a 3.2. I always wished that I had the capacity to get straight A's, but I didn't. I didn't beat myself up about it, but I really studied hard for my grades.

One of the big, most underlying messages for me is celebrating beauty that is not typical.

The president of Victoria's Secret promised me a lifetime supply of Victoria's Secret products, even after I decided to leave the company. But once I left, he only let me have it for a year. So I have a bone to pick.

I love being able to go to a store, let's say... a store like Topshop or Zara or maybe even Macy's, depends on what department, and not have to look at the price tag.

I think I'm too young to be a mogul. I think I'm too young for that.

Black women don't have the same body image problems as white women. They are proud of their bodies. Black men love big butts.

Self-love has very little to do with how you feel about your outer self. It's about accepting all of yourself.

As I look into the future, I see radical changes in both how people 'attain beauty,' and how the world perceives beauty. In general, I believe traditional beauty will be less valuable - and more uniqueness will be heralded.

My most difficult class at Harvard Business School would have to be finance.

I love all kinds of bread. Whenever I crave junk food, I want salty things like peanuts or potato chips.

What keeps me up at night? Sometimes it's day-to-day work stuff. And a lot of the times, it's, 'Am I making the wrong decisions in terms of reaching young women?'
