Willow Smith For Teen Vogue

Covering the May issue of Teen Vogue, Willow opened up about her feelings about fashion, shared her dreams of going to MIT, and explained how incredibly close she is to her big brother . 
 'We’re like binary stars, like two parts of one thing. I know what he’s thinking at all times. And he knows what I’m thinking,' she told the magazine. 'We’re not identical twins, but it feels like that in a lot of ways.'
As the teenagers are growing up and finding their own distinct personalities, it seems that they've still managed to become quite similar people, with plenty in common.
One thing they share is a love of fashion — and the privileged of being loved by the fashion world. 
Willow is still quite proud of her big brother's Louis Vuitton womenswear campaign, in which the 17-year-old modeled a skirt by the designer brand.
And now she's gearing up for a campaign all her own, after Karl Lagerfeld announced earlier this month that she'd been named Chanel's newest' ambassadress'. 
'Being a young African-American woman with dreads, it blows my mind that I’m a Chanel ambassador. Like, how am I a Chanel ambassador? It is so beautiful,' she said. 
'I’m coming into a new part of my life that is completely unknown, and I’m jumping right in. All I can do from here is continue to shift paradigms and continue to push the envelope further and further. But I am doing it every day just by being myself.' 
After sitting front row at the Chanel show in Paris in March, Willow came back stateside for a campus visit at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology — her dream school, where she hopes to study science someday.
Bringing up subjects like nanoscience, civil engineering, and microbiology — and how we need more women in those fields — Willow said she had a great time talking to female students and teachers at MIT because science is 'such a man's world', and she hopes that will change.
Though she didn't reveal what she plans to major in (and still has a few years to decide), she did divulge that she's a 'STEM freak' (STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and is working to create songs out of mathematical equations.
Certainly, the teen is setting the example that it can be cool for girls to like math and science, and favoring those traditionally 'nerdy' subjects isn't mutually exclusive with liking fashion, make-up, or even celebrity culture. 
'I have some cool shoes on and I wear crazy eyeliner, but it’s really all about emulating the colors you feel inside,' she said. 'A lot of clothes are cute, but after you buy the Yeezy shoes, after you get your hair done with a weave, you’re still the same person. I feel like more and more kids are starting to realize this.' 


I don't understand her !!!!
