Coco Rocha is a world-famous model, but she’s speaking up about how she puts religion before modeling. In an interview with latest issue of Fashion magazine, Rocha talks about career, her future career plans, and her religion.
She says, “At the beginning of my career there were photos and moments I wish I wasn’t a part of but I didn’t realize I could say “no.” Now I know that. I grew up – and still am – a practising Jehovah’s Witness and believe in everything the Bible has to say. I’m a Christian first and a model second.” She adds that it’s important for models to stick up for themselves in the world of fashion, saying, “It’s important for every model to have a voice. When I started modelling, people said to me, “You’re going to have to throw away your beliefs in order to be a successful model.” But I didn’t.”
She adds that she doesn’t yet want kids, saying, “Right now it would be unfair to have a kid in the mess of all my life,’ she said. ‘But when my work is done, I would love to have kids with James.”
She also talks about working with Karolina Kurkova as a mentor on the upcoming reality show ‘The Face’, saying, “It’s fascinating having three different mentors on the show – Naomi being the generation of the original supermodel Trinity, Karolina being part of the whole Victoria’s Secret world and me, who’s known for edgy editorial.”
