We live in a world where social media attention seems to be one of the most rampant 'drugs' plaguing our society worldwide. Everyone is focused on looking picture perfect, faking it many times 'for the likes'. Many look at the celebrities and models thinking their lives are perfect. International fashion model Cameron Russell admits she won "a genetic lottery": she's tall, pretty and an underwear model. But don't judge her by her looks. In this fearless talk, she takes a big picture look at the industry that had her looking highly seductive at barely 16-years-old.
