The 31-year-old is also a big activist when it comes to being a role model for young women. “I wish to teach young girls that your sexiness is not confined to showing off your skin although there’s nothing wrong with that too.” She continued saying “you can also exude sexiness when you’re fully clothed, happy in your own skin and with who you are.”
