              you got lucky by being born good looking that's how you become a model, ugly people don't become models simple

                        Wow Romee I like you but this video has me fuming. I work with human trafficking victims, mainly the juveniles, roughly ages 8 to 15. The brutality these young girls suffered day after day, night after night, with no end in sight is soul breaking. To sit here and watch you, a young woman who hit the genetic lottery boohooing that your the prettiest supermodel on earth currently garners zero sympathy from me. It's like you were given all this power and you just didn't know how to use it yet. That's all. I mean, losing it for MINUTES... TWICE because you couldn't go to the dance and be with your friends and family. Instead I was made up to be the most beautiful woman in the world, got paid thousands of dollars to walk the best runway shows, was only treated with the utmost respect and dignity, has family and friends that ADORE you but boo hoo. Meanwhile these girls have nobody. Please use your celeb to turn the spotlight on kidnapped young girls kidnapped and sold into sex slavery instead of making so many silly video's with Karlie and what not. Thank you.

                                    when she started talking about food and having a bad relationship with food, it reminded me a lot of myself and my bad relationship with food. it really meant a lot to hear from a beautiful model like romee that you should not have that relationship with food and that you are allowed to enjoy eating and that you should eat healthy for the way you FEEL, not the way you look. thank you big sis ily<3

Ahh the anxiety attacks! escpecially in the models' apartment feeling alone in a new city, all of this video is so relatable! xoxo.

                                                                          • Elif Alara

She was separated from her fam and boyfriend. Also she got panic attacks in hotel rooms when she was 16. It's all about being younger and being alone in different country at 16 :(

As a ballet dancer about to audition for companies, I struggle with my weight, and being motivated besides knowing I’m talented, and have so many great opportunities (which is all in my head). It’s time I start trusting my gut/heart. :) Thank you Romee for sharing your story!

                                                                                            Thank you for this. 👍✌👏💓😘💖I also left my life behind in N'orleans to pursue a better life for myself in Calif. It wasn't difficult, due to my MOM had help with me while she pursued working and taking care of her CHILD (me hehehehe)...
                                                                                            because of that, I knew leaving N'orleans would be best way to go at life. Like you, glad I forward to TODAY!...
                                                                                            I see another person (on my job, actually) who is there on an internship far away from where he's from. ...(Actually, Japan)...well versed young man...
                                                                                            Makes you appreciate that so many PPLS are going through, this very same issue you speak of...Your presentation really does help PPL, let's them understand/appreciate,
                                                                                            Opportunities come with sacrifices (never known/observed, that are hidden) but are necessary for growth/advancements and yes, Happiness!
                                                                                            You mentioned that V.S. allowed you to become and ANGEL! with them and what an "ANGEL" your are....👌👏👍
                                                                                            Stay Well/Stay Informed, cuz by you creating your YT channel, I can be also...Peace Out!👍✌👌💖😏
