Naomi follows in her mother’s footsteps and at the age of 10 she is accepted into the Italia Conti Academy Theatre School where she learns ballet. She had not yet had the idea of becoming a supermodel. She dropped out of school at 14 and is now one of the biggest supermodels in the world.
The start of a supermodel
