Refugee of the Day: Adut Akech, Model, South Sudan

Model Adut Akech is a Vogue cover model.  She stars on the September 2019 Forces for Change Vogue cover with 14 other inspirational women. 

Akech was forced to flee her native South Sudan and lived in a refugee camp in Kenya before resettling in Australia. She got her modelling break at 16 when she was booked to walk exclusively for Saint Laurent: now, she has closed Chanel couture shows, fronted campaigns for Valentino, Fendi, Missoni, and Miu Miu, and starred on the covers of multiple international editions of Vogue.
