I interviewed two women for my Extraordinary Lives with India Hicks mini series.
Cindy Joseph and Lana Ogilvie are both models who have blazed their own trail in a world of young white faces.
Cindy, began modeling at the age of 49, and Lana, the first black model to receive the Cover Girl cosmetics contract.
Both of these women may have been born with great beauty, but their shared characteristics of modesty, courage, tenacity and self belief is rare.
I hope their stories inspire you.
