Gigi Hadid has admitted she considered quitting as a model because she let her critics get to her.
The 20-year-old beauty said she struggles with the negative things said about her online but has learned to use her “voice” to speak out and help others in similar situations, reported a leading daily.
“I am human and try not to read it all the time – but it does get to me, I think that when you go through something like that, and you’re really almost letting it affect what you think of yourself – it was getting to a place where I was almost like, ‘Should I be here?’ And I was like, ‘I shouldn’t be questioning doing my job because people are being mean on the Internet.
“So I just felt like I wasn’t scared to have a voice. Some people might think that it was maybe aggressive, but I just think that I was doing it because I want to stand up for myself. I think that I have the right to have a say because we all do on social media,” she said.
