Tyra Banks graduated from Harvard


Beautiful and smart women exist. And Tyra Banks is one of them. The one who was nominated in 1994 and 1996 among the “50 most beautiful people in the world”, one of the greatest american supermodels, Banks graduated on February 17 from Harvard Business School. She has been completed a course in management, business and leadership. The other days Tyra posted pictures with her diploma on Twitter, saying: “SUCH an exciting moment 4 me & wanted 2 share w/u. Don’t be afraid 2 raise ur hand in class!”

Tyra had to quit school in favor of modeling when she was 17, and she had repeatedly said this was one of the hardest decisions in her life. She believes that the studies she had just completed will help her run her business better.

Tyra has part of the franchise “America’s Next Top Model”, is co-founder of the Tv show “True Beauty”, hosts “The Tyra Banks Show” and is also the founder of Bankable Enterprises. She was the first black model who appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine, and one of Victoria’s Secret angels.

Banks is not the first model who decided to return to studies. Christy Turlington studied a Masters degree in public health at Columbia University and Lily Cole is currently studying History of Art at Cambridge.
