Supermodel Adut Akech covers Elle
Model Adut Akech covers the August issue of Elle in a sequined Prada look. For the accompanying story, Akech spoke to Roxanne Fequiere about her childhood as a South Sudanese refugee, the bullying and racism she endured after emigrating to Australia as a child, what being named an Estée Lauder global brand ambassador means to her, and how she sees her modeling work as a step toward creating a world in which people like herself won't have to question their worth: "I never, ever, in my wildest dreams, thought I would have achieved half the things that I have now. I do this for my little sisters. I do it for little Black girls all around the world. I do it for refugees. I do it for people who are not seen and not heard. That's my responsibility."{Elle}
