Karlie Kloss Catwalks in Brazil, Dishes Advice for Young Models

American model Karlie Kloss has headed to Brazil to take part in Sao Paulo Fashion Week, walking for Brazilian based designers such as Animale during her time there. Speaking during the event, Karlie opened up on her own advice that she offers to young girls who hope to become models. She  states that one of the most important things she has learned is to use her insecurities to further herself:

I want that I'm creating this platform will serve not only to support causes I believe in, but to have a voice to speak to the other girls. I want to be able to make them believe that they can follow their dreams, believe in themselves and find confidence within them to feel beautiful and good in your own skin. While girl, this is one of the strongest things against which we struggle, self-confidence, you always have so many insecurities while growing. I had! I was taller than all the boys and girls in my class and it was horrible! We all have our difficulties and the great struggle is to learn to overcome it. Learning to use our insecurities to make us stronger. My point was what I hated most when I was younger and it was something that I learned to appreciate and use to jump today!

Speaking on her plans for the future, Karlie says that she isn't going to slow down and even plans to go back to school at some point:

So much! This is only the beginning. I'm only 20, but feel like I am a thousand! There's still so much I want to do in the industry and out of fashion in my career. I want to continue to grow and build this platform that gives me voice, turn my name into a brand, like Cindy Crawford has done, but also love to go back to school. There's so much I want to learn! Maybe even act ... I do not know, is many things. (Laughs) I want to travel the world, meet many places. That's the best part of my job, being able to travel. Look where I am now, in São Paulo. Life is good!

Commenting on who she admires and looks up to in the industry, Karlie says:

In fashion, I'm a fan of Christy Turlington, I think she is super elegant and graceful and is someone I admire very much, because she is involved with charities too. Also I admire Cindy Crawford because she is a businesswoman magnificent and very intelligent. She managed to build a brand with her name.
