Karen Civil is the latest muse for RollingOut Magazine. The Haitian-American who has worked with the likes of Lil Wayne, Dr Dre and is even currently campaigning for Hillary Clinton chats about her upbringing, her rise to fame and more.
“Growing up was very interesting for me, if you were Haitian, people just automatically assumed that English was a second language. So they had a special class for my brother and I, but we spoke proper English. The Black kids didn’t really get us, the Haitian kids didn’t really think we were one of them, and White kids didn’t take to us either, so it was weird. But my brother got through it better than I did because he played all the sports and was super intelligent. He eventually went to a different school than me and I just basically had to fend for myself.”
