International Beauty: Alek Wek

In a time when supermodels are on more magazine covers for their cocaine scandals and assault charges, Alek Wek needs to be celebrated. What better day to highlight this inspiring woman than today—International Women’s Day!

Alek, a Sudanese refugee, recently founded a non-profit organization called, W.E.K. or Working to Educate Kids and last year she released an autobiography entitled Alek documenting her journey from a childhood of poverty in Sudan to the catwalks of Europe. Yea, she’s that awesome.

So take a look beyond the Victoria’s Secret ads and Galliano runway and get to know, Alek Wek.
