Read Iskra Lawrence's TED Talk Before It Airs
This past weekend, Iskra Lawrence took the stage in Reno to give her first-ever TED talk as part of TEDxUNR. While it may seem like just another day in the life of a top model, we can assure you it's quite a big deal—Lawrence is now one of a select few models to give one of the talks (only Ashley Graham, Cameron Russell, and Geena Rocero preceded her). But let's be clear: Lawrence is no stranger to giving a motivational speech. She's wowed crowds at Glamour's Women of the Year Live Summit, Refinery29's Every Body Beautiful Symposium, and various National Eating Disorder Association gatherings. When TED caught wind of the latter, they reached out to get her on their stage ASAP.
