In the latest episode of Victoria’s Secret’s podcast, VS Voices, award winning host and photographer Amanda de Cadenet sat down with beloved supermodel and CR Fashion Book cover star Adut Akech for a deep discussion that goes beyond the runway. Specifically, in an exclusive first-look at her episode, the rising fashion star delves into several aspects of her life and career in a refreshingly honest and humble way.
She begins by addressing how her experiences as a refugee have shaped who she is today and how they have affected her journey. From there, the CR Parade ringleader discusses her journey as a self-taught model, how she has learned to prioritize her mental health, her role in the VS Collective, her passion for natural hair, and her hopes and goals for the future not only of her modelling career, but also for her advocacy work, using her platform to inspire change.
“The promise I made to myself is I’m always gonna use my voice when it comes to things that matter to me, it’s not just me, me doing what I do is for an entire community and it’s for an entire village, it’s for an entire race,” Akech tells de Cadenet. “I’m always going to use my platform and whenever I have the opportunity to speak – and I’m always going to speak even if I’m not presented the opportunity – but if those opportunities are there I’m going to take them.”
