Supermodel Naomi Campbell has lived a pretty incredible life and in her new documentary she shares with fans how her upbringing molded her into the person she is today.
While Naomi has certainly been the focus of many tabloids magazines over the years, the ‘CNBC Meets’ series will be centering on her upbringing in London and how that helped inspire all of the charity work she does. Campbell explains;
“I’ve really enjoyed working with Tania on this show, and I’m looking forward to seeing the finished show. For me, it’s really important to remember my roots and experiences growing up – it’s those things that make you the person that you are. London will always be home to me and it was so much fun to take a walk down memory lane and visit the house I grew up in.”
The documentary also focuses on how Naomi broke some pretty significant barriers in the fashion industry for other black women and there are a few testimonials included in the show from Quincy Jones and Duran Duran band members Simon Le Bon and Nick Rhodes.
Naomi will be honored for her charity work at the Angel Ball in New York on October 17 and has raised more than $7 million for different charitable causes. Denise Rich who founded the Angel Foundation after her daughter passed from leukemia spoke highly of Campbell, saying; “She really is amazing woman and she does a lot for charity. She has her own charity. She raised a lot of money this summer for Haiti and for AIDS relief.”
