Gigi Hadid, current Balmain babe, Victoria’s Secret Angel, and Versace ad star, had a very different career path in mind before becoming the model of the moment.
“I’ve always been interested in criminal psychology. First I wanted to be a doctor,” she revealed in a recent interview.
“Then I wanted to be a forensic scientist.”
But there was one problem with Hadid’s plan to one day professionally reenact her favorite CSI episodes: the amount of time it takes to get there.
“To be a forensic scientist means you have to go to school for eight years. I was like, ‘Over that!'” she admitted.
“I realized what I enjoyed was trying to unravel people’s brains, why people commit crimes when they get older.”
So instead of enrolling herself in a forensic program, Hadid attended NYC’s The New School last year, where she took up courses in criminal psychology.
However, after her modeling career’s meteoric rise in 2015, never-ending fashion shows and photo shoots forced the 20-year-old to put her higher education on hold.
