Ajak Deng has apparently, officially quit modeling! It shouldn't be news to any of us that the fashion and modeling industry is quite fickle but coming off the heels of a pretty successful modeling season for Deng, having walked for Tome, Zac Posen and Marc Jacobs but sometimes, enough is simply enough.
The model took to Instagram with her decision saying: “Put your best foot forward. I am happy to announce that I am officially done with the fashion industry, I will be moving back to Australia In order to live the life that I fully deserved. “ She continues, “Which is real life. I can no longer deal with the fakes and the lies. My life is too short for this dramatic life. I am thankful and grateful for every sweet souls that I have crossed path with.”
Guess we can't blame her for wanting to truly live the life she wants and if this is it, I applaud her. Go for it Sis! And...if this is her way of taking a stand on the issues surrounding the lack of diversity in the modeling industry, I can certainly understand that as well. Either way, we will miss you on the runway Ajak.
