Why are people so mean to me? Do I really look like a freak? Is my forehead really that big?
Tyra Banks was born December 4th, 1973 in Inglewood, California. Her mother was a medical photographer and her father owned a local car dealership.
Hey, Tyra! I think you should be a model
Really?! You think so? Thats the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me?
As soon as Tyra's freshman year started, people starting bullying and making fun of Tyra for things as simple of the color of her eyes. Overtime, the bullying got out of hand and Tyra began to loss the self esteem she always had.
Hey Tyra! I know that you were upset about getting rejected from 6 model agencies but NY and LA Model Mangement accepted you!
Really?! OMG this is huge, I'm going to be a model!
Within a few years after she got accepted into an agency, she became a SUPERmodel
As Tyra's self-esteem rapidly decreased, she began to question weather she was "good enough" to fit in with the rest of her grade.
She was the first black model to be on the cover of GQ. She has done 17 covers of Vouge Italia and more!
In high school, Tyra always sat alone during lunch. One day, a girl came up to her and told her she should try modeling. Tyra found this shocking because Tyra never thought she was pretty enough to be a model.
