Aoki Lee Simmons The girls should know that brains are possible And beauty. 

The Harvard student, 19, was recently asked by a fan on TikTok why she still wanted to model even though she was “so articulate and obviously educated” and Aoki—the youngest daughter of model Kimora Lee Simmons and record executive Russell Simmons—had the perfect response.

“Well, one, models aren’t uneducated and not articulate,'” she explained in the Aug. 1 post, “but two, I think what you’re really getting at is, ‘Why am I going into a field that doesn’t necessarily require a degree or require a whole lot of book smarts when I have a lot of education?'”

Aoki explained that although she is passionate about modeling, this wasn’t her first love. Due to her height, she used to play volleyball. “I believe we need to normalize your liking for something,” she said. It doesn’t matter if you are a natural at something. One can become proficient at something, but not be able to keep doing it.
