Taylor Hill: ‘I Didn’t Exist In High School,’ Claims Victoria’s Secret Angel
Taylor Hill says “I didn’t exist” when talking about her high school days, and the story goes viral. The supermodel, who became a Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2015, has revealed that she was not a popular child in school and was the victim of bullying during that time.
Model Taylor Hill, 19, is considered by many as one of the hottest women on the planet. Her popularity has been soaring since 2014 when she joined the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. 2015 was even better, and she became a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
The young woman was not always as popular, during her high school years, Hill was even bullied by her peers. The Palatine, Illinois native is now sharing her unique story, and proving once more if need be that after high school it does get better for victims of bullying.
Earlier this week, Hill, who graduated from Pomona High School in Arvada, Colorado, told Cosmopolitan.com:
“I was the butt of everyone’s jokes [back then]. Tall, skinny Taylor. I didn’t like high school. I was ready. I was like, ‘Put me in the world — I don’t care. I’m a nerd. They don’t like me there.'”
She also stated that no one remembers that she went to Pomona High School and people are surprised when she mentions that she was there. Hill added:
“Boys didn’t like me then, and now they’re all like, ‘Hey, I went to school with you. Last time I checked, nobody remembers that I went to that school. People were shocked when they found out I went there. I didn’t exist back in the day.”
Hill wants her story to inspire young girls going through similar things or those who might be interested in a modeling career; it gets better. She explained:
“I would say that anything is possible, because I didn’t always think that I was beautiful and I didn’t always believe in myself, and I think it’s so important to have self confidence and always remember who you are. No matter what people tell you, it’s always about what you think of yourself in the end. People have told me a million things in my life — and especially my career as a model, like, “Oh she’s too pretty, she’s too tan, she’s too short, she’s too tall, she’s not skinny enough.” — and it’s crazy! You can’t listen to any of it and you have to remember who you are, what you do, and what makes you happy. That’s my message: happiness and positivity are such a huge thing for me.”
Taylor Hill was discovered at 14 by agent Jim Jordan and left high school. However, a year later, she was able to get her diploma. The latest Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show aired last night and was watched by close to seven million people.
