Nigel talked about a young 14 year old girl who he felt had true beauty and confidence. He was photographing Nicole who had cancer. She had bad scarring down her arm, yet she angled the scarred side toward Nigel. He asked her if she wanted to turn her good side to the camera and she said “I want to be photographed this way. This is me. This is my life”. Of course, in reality, appearances do matter. But, allure, humor, compassion also play a part. Nigel said all the models on ANTM are pretty. But do they have that magnetism or bring excitement to the table? “People judge books by the cover, but make sure that the book is worth reading!” said Nigel.
Mr. Barker showed his compassionate side by also talking about UN Foundation organization Girl Up that lets American girls raise money to assist adolescent girls from third world countries. I think Nigel has a great message that could help a lot of people with their self confidence and look forward to reading the book!
