Yes. So… The lucky, um, girl is French model Ines Rau.

The Breitbart article goes on to explain that Rau always felt she had a fantastic future in front of her, as she stated, “I always knew from within, when I was a little kid in my room in the ghetto, that a beautiful destiny was waiting for me. I don’t know how to explain it. A little voice was telling me, ‘You’ll see. Patience.’ ”

According to Rau, she is strongly advocates for a variety of causes, including women’s and LGBTQ rights. However, her most strongest feelings are for the environment and, specifically, global warming. “Nothing touches me more than fighting against global warming. I was made to fight for the planet—the forest, the animals, the air. If I get famous, that’s my first battle.”

Seems like Rau is well on her way to becoming famous. Or maybe she already is. Let us know your thoughts in the comments, below.
