almost everyone on tumblr was mourning the death of the model Daul Kim and I’d only briefly come across her name and work on the internet. I thought ‘oh dear another model, gone’ but then I got really tired of all the memorial posts about her, I was all ‘what was so special about her?’
But then I saw a youtube video of clips she shot at backstage shows and just clips of her life, and she really seemed like a special person. She was far too special just to be a model. She’s one of those people that just gets ‘it’ and this world just can’t satisfy them. They see through all the lies and horrible things that go on all around them.
I wrongly judged her by my prejudiced views on models, that they’re not very intelligent, have no personality and just get by on their looks.
I shouldn’t judge people by their appearance. I try so hard not to, but it’s human nature to make a split second judgment based on looks.
Even just putting a voice to a face can instantly change your perception of someone.
