ROLE MODEL. At the age of 25, Kimmy Jayanti has certainly earned the coveted status of being called a supermodel

“Yeah, I’ve been doing this for eleven years,” she begins. “I’ve done many things in my life, I’ve been through a lot, nothing in this life surprises me anymore.” She then goes on to explain what it takes for someone to be considered part of the elite: “A supermodel is someone who started from zero; you’ve been through a lot and you’ve become an irreplaceable personality.”
For sure, this particular supermodel exudes a strong persona without being arrogant; she’s fun and has a charming no-holds-barred attitude. During our conversation, she mentioned about a modeling school that she opened last year called, appropriately enough, the Kimmy Jayanti School. “I always tell my students ‘I open my school just to share my experiences. My school is a fun school but this is not a joke. I came here, I devoted my time and I want you to do something even bigger than what I did,’” she says.
Apart from sharing her knowledge to young, aspiring models, she went into the business of teaching because she sees that modeling isn’t something that you can do as a long-term career. Right now she’s trying to branch out to other things such as being a presenter while also taking care of her beachwear line.
