Bullied teen lands spot on America’s Next Top Model
A 19-year-old girl with a rare skin pigmentation disorder is one of the 14 contestants who has made it on to this summer’s round of Tyra Banks’ America’s Next Top Model.
Chantelle Brown-Young from Toronto was diagnosed with vitiligo – the same condition Michael Jackson had – around the age of four and said growing up she was cruelly nicknamed ‘zebra’ and ‘cow’ because of the white patches covering her face and body.
But thanks to her natural beauty she is now fulfillng her dreams of being a model. Her social network accounts reveal that she has already graced the catwalk dozens of times, starred in a music video and last month, she was photographed by Nick Knight, who has lensed everyone from Kate Moss to Karlie Kloss.
