Model Winnie Harlow Talking Beyond Colour: 'Yes, I'm A Strong, Black Woman, But I'm Also A Strong Woman'
Since arriving onto the scene via the model-making machine that is America's Next Top Model, 21-year-old Winnie Harlow could easily have taken every job that was offered. She certainly had her doubts that she'd ever make it as a model, until she met Canadian photographer Shannon Boodram, who inspired her to build her own profile via social media. But Harlow, whose vitiligo renders her skin like the beautiful brushstrokes of a painter - sweeping arcs of nut brown alongside bright white - has chosen to turn the condition that made her a target for bullying at school, into her strength.
