Tyra Banks Covers Cosmopolitan South Africa December 2012 Issue

Tyra Banks graces the issue of the December 2012 cover of Cosmopolitan South Africa. In the cover story Banks delivers a special message to her COSMO SA fans, then talks about using her TV shows to empower other ‘flawsome’ women.

Highlights from the interview:

On what makes her succeed:
“Drive. Some people are born with it. Sometimes circumstances push one towards success.”

On if she misses anything about modeling:
“I don’t, because of America’s Next Top Model. Towards the end of my modeling career, I wanted to be working on the set of my own TV show. I have loved conceptualizing shoots and editing film since then.”

On completing her executive-management program at Harvard:
“It changed my life. It was intense, studying in my pajamas with my roommates. It was mandatory to stay on dorms, sharing living quarters. Of 180 classmates, only 18 were women.”
