I recently hung out with British supermodel & actress Lily Cole who can now add social entrepreneur to her list of achievements! Lily was discovered at the age of 14 in London, graced the cover of British Vogue at 16, modeled for Chanel, Louis Vuitton & Prada, acted with Johnny Depp AND has a double degree with honors from Cambridge. Nice!
