Hey, Summer Campers!
If you’re like the rest of America, you probably love Cindy Crawford. Her beautiful face has been on countless magazine covers and she’s walked down so many runways that I’m sure she’s lost count by now! Cindy had done such wonders with her modeling career that by the time she was 29 years old, she was the highest paid model worldwide!
Born in Illinois, Cindy attended US Air Force Academy Science Camp in the summer season where she enjoyed camp programs and camp friends. A hard worker from an early age, at 16 years old, Cindy was keeping busy with her summer job, detasseling corn. Lucky for her, it was during her job that a newspaper photographer happened to notice her working away.
He snapped a picture of her that brought Cindy a world of positive feedback and gave her the encouragement she needed to pursue a modeling career. She entered the Elite Model Management’s Look of the Year contest one year later and won second place. After that, the Elite Model Management began to represent Cindy and the rest is history!
It’s funny because when Cindy first embarked upon her modeling career, magazines would eliminate the ‘Crawford mole’ which went on to become the model’s trademark trait. Despite early attempts to work around it, Cindy’s mole that rests just above her lip has become just as famous as she has herself!
Cindy has seen great success as her modeling career has turned her into a celebrity the world over! Cindy has taken acting roles on television as well as film and has been a spokesperson for companies like Pepsi. She also hosted MTV’s House of Style.
Now nearly 50 years old, Cindy has shaped her modeling career to fit what she wanted. What do you want?
Thanks for reading, campers!
