BIOGRAPHY

The success story of Liya Kebede reminds of a Cinderella story.Her move to the top took determination, hard-work and a spirit that refused to give up against tough odds.A truly inspiring story for all aspiring models.The Ethopian model grew up in a comfortable middle-class family, the only girl among four boys.Growing up in such an environment lead Liya to develop few girly traits, and exhibit little interest in fashion.
