13. Never Thought She’d be a Model
Being an international supermodel today was never the career Tyra dreamt of as a little girl. She dreamed of going off to college. She toured campuses, met with professors, and when she finally chose her path, Loyola Marymount University, she went on an orientation tour with her dad and bought out the whole student store. Tyra was enrolled and set to study film and television when she got an unexpected phone call from a modeling agent in Paris. She was at a fork in the road. She could go to school as planned or take this once in a lifetime opportunity to go model in Paris. She ultimately decided to defer her admission for a year and go to Paris. Of course, that one year of modeling turned into a lifelong career.
