Hidden racism: I'll always be the only black model in the fashion arena.
I can almost be called the only African-American model on the field. --Precious Lee
Precious Lee said in the report that when she met her clients, she was always asked about her race and heard them talk about her background, "When we look at the figures in the fashion industry, we always see no black models, not to mention the big black models, And I'll always be the only black model on the floor, and people rarely appreciate the different types of beauty, because the publications, the media, the designers--actually have the power to make the change happen and people don't do anything to make it happen. Fashion is thought to be the next new trend, and when 1 million slim women are in the magazine, there are other 14 or 16th sizes of women in the box outside the aesthetic standard. 」

Because there is no such person in this circle, I have played a role in the hope that through myself, I will open up more dollars and put aside the biased dialogue. "All the way, defying the eyes of the world, her beauty to let society see," My disability is very obvious. People sometimes see my disability first rather than see me as the "man", sometimes I would rather people ask questions that make them uncomfortable, because those are the things I face every day, better than people guessing on me, 100 times times more awkward than those uncomfortable problems. 」
