Speaking in the accompanying interview, Shanina reveals she’s proud of having shattered racial prejudices in the modelling world.

The star, who has enjoyed a 20-year long career in front of the camera, details the difficulties she experienced while starting out in the industry, and the deep-rooted racism that still exists.

‘They said I was never going to be a high-fashion model and that I'd never do runways. Agents, clients… they all told me the same thing’, she said.

‘I would go to castings and never get the jobs that I wanted, and it really affected me – especially as so much of it was because I look so mixed.’

Shanina went on to reveal she has been turned down for jobs due to her skin colour, and doesn’t think enough has changed in the industry – despite claims to the contrary.

She explained: ‘I remember going to castings in Europe and getting turned away because of my skin colour. That was only six years ago.

‘We've come a long way, and we are moving towards a better future.

‘But there's still some jobs I don't book because I don't fit into a certain category. I've had to bang down so many doors for people to understand and embrace me.’

Elsewhere in her interview, Shanina discusses her ‘really rough year’ and split from Greg Andrews – aka DJ Ruckus – after three years of marriage.

Teasing a potential new romance with a boyfriend named ‘P’, the beauty admitted she had ‘given up on love’.

However, the supermodel’s heartbreak has only made her strong and she is now focused on helping others achieve their dreams.

‘When you deal with really hard things that happen in life, you feel much stronger. I do.

‘I try to look at the positive and see what I can learn from it, what I can take from it, and how I can help others’, she said.
