News - 22 Apr `19Winnie Harlow talks about vitiligo on The Jonathan Ross Show

New

An iconic supermodel Winnie Harlow talks to Jonathan about her vitiligo experience on the The Jonathan Ross Show. Winnie got very personal about what it’s like to be a public figure with the condition.  This isn’t the first time that Winnie has expressed her frustration about mass media that says she's "model who suffers from vitiligo."

“I don’t feel like I am suffering,” Winnie said. “I am conquering, I am living, I am living my best life in the way that I can and thriving.”

She continues: “If anything I’m SUCCEEDING at showing people that their differences don’t make them WHO they are!”

We couldn’t agree with this that message more. From to appearing on innumerable lifestyle magazine covers, to walking in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show last year, to landing a spot as a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2019 cover girl, it’s safe to say Winnie is definitely thriving.

Watch Winnie chatting with Jonathan about her Thailand travel experience and eating a 100-year old egg in this video clip from the show:
