It’s refreshing to see how the modelling industry, and the world, is developing a growing acceptance of diversity and celebrating it.

Model Chantelle Brown-Young (real name Winnie Harlow) is breaking boundaries in the world of high fashion.

The Canadian beauty was featured on the 21st season of America’s Next Top Model, which is being screened on Vuzu Amp.

The 20-year-old’s unique look is the result of vitiligo, a rare condition that causes a loss of skin pigment. She says she was bullied because of the condition while she was growing up.

Today, Brown-Young has learnt to embrace her true self and shares that confidence with the world through her modelling.
