Being the daughter of one famous entertainer must be a journey, but what happens to you as an individual when you have two famous parents?
Just ask Selah Marley, the daughter of Rohan Marley (Bob Marley’s Son) and “L Boogie” Lauryn Hill.
Marley, at just 18 has jumped ahead over being a “newbie” in the modeling world. Working with people like Chanel, Calvin Klein, Beyoncé’s Ivy Park line and Kanye West’s recent Yeezy collection.
She now is gracing the cover of the April 2017 issue of the U.K. Sunday Times Style Magazine.
During the cover story, the rising model discusses what it’s been like working with the likes of ‘Ye and Bey.
“I think a lot of times the image that Black women have in the media is quite negative,” Marley says, reflecting on working on the Ivy Park campaign, along with SZA and Black-ish star Yara Shahidi. “I think Beyoncé working to really empower and show the grace and beauty and intelligence in young Black women is really beautiful.”
She also talks about her first time ever meeting West during the in-depth profile.
“I was getting anxiety, like, yo, I wanna tell Kanye I love him,” she admitted. “He’s been through a lot of persecution in the media and by people, but it doesn’t stop him from being who he is.”
Selah sounds like she’s off to a good start. And why wouldn’t she be with the genes she’s inherited.
