American model and TV personality, Tyra Banks will be lecturing students at Stanford University in May next year, 2017.
The former host of “America’s Next Top Model” will make her teaching debut at the school as a guest lecturer, co-teaching a class on creating and protecting a personal brand.
25 graduate students will partake in Ms. Banks class which teaches them how to harness all forms of old and new media to showcase their strengths. The former Victoria’s Secret model and chief executive of TYRA Beauty will also deliver tips on handling press exposure as a business leader.
According to the 42-year-old, her teaching style will be engaging and fun, but tough. She said, “If I see somebody not paying attention, I’m gonna call on them.” Also adding she makes it her goal while speaking to college-aged audiences to keep them off their phones unless it is to “tweet something I’ve said.”
