Karlie Kloss would like to beat you at your own game

Karlie Kloss wants to be a role model.

Chatting with Vogue Australia, the 24-year-old model talks about using her spotlight as a platform for all the things she’s passionate about. She recently launched the obnoxiously alliterated, but obviously well intentioned Kode With Klossy camp and a career scholarship that encourages teen girls to get involved in science, math and coding.

“I feel a real responsibility to get the girls who are paying attention to me interested in these important skills,” she explained to the magazine. “[Those skills] can transform their future and help bring them into an industry where there is a real disconnect and disproportionate number of men to women in the field,” she said, in a run-on sentence.

“I’m sure people underestimate me all the time, but that only motivates me to prove them wrong and actually beat them at their own game.”

If by “proving them wrong,” she means recognizing her own mistakes and owning up to them — like the time she apologized for dressing up as a geisha as a way to celebrate diversity — then sure. I’ll take it.
