*Naomi Campbell will be the focus of an upcoming CNBC series in which she explores her upbringing in London and her various charity endeavors.
The British supermodel’s segment of “CNBC Meets” will show her explaining how her upbringing in London helped to inspire her charity work.
“I’ve really enjoyed working with Tania on this show, and I’m looking forward to seeing the finished show,” she told vogue.co.uk. “For me, it’s really important to remember my roots and experiences growing up – it’s those things that make you the person that you are. London will always be home to me and it was so much fun to take a walk down memory lane and visit the house I grew up in.”
Also in the documentary, Naomi talks about breaking racial barriers in fashion, and there are also contributions from her mentor, legendary producer Quincy Jones and Duran Duran stars Simon Le Bon and Nick Rhodes.
Earlier this month it was revealed that Naomi – who has raised more than $7 million for charitable causes – will be honored for her philanthropy at the Oct. 17th Angel Ball in New York, an event organized by the Angel Foundation, which seeks to raise awareness of cancer research.
