Her ‘granddad’ gives her strength when she’s weak, says the supermodel…
Supermodel Naomi Campbellhas said that she is inspired by her ‘granddad’ Nelson Mandela.
Since the two met in the early 90s, they’ve been close ever since and whenever Naomi is feeling weak, she always looks to Mr. Mandela for strength and inspiration.
She told Interview Magazine: "I have to pinch myself sometimes because who in the world doesn't want to know Nelson Mandela? But I've been extremely blessed to have been in his presence many times. He's someone who I often think about when things get tough and life isn't full of roses. Nothing can be as hard as what he went through.
"Now, I don't have his constitution for forgiving. I hope one day to acquire that. But I don't hold grudges either. When things happen, I just kind of want to move away from them for a while and hope that things will come back in a more positive light."
