#WLYG is much more than four letters for some girls. It's a chance for them to leave their small towns, take the catwalk and become the newest force in the modeling industry.
"We Love Your Genes," a social campaign pioneered by the world-famous talent agency IMG, helps catapult these young, fresh faces into the world of fashion. It's a discovery platform all run by a few letters: Model hopefuls hashtag WLYG on their Instagram posts, where scouts can find the next big thing and offer them the opportunity of a lifetime.
Take 18-year-old Carol Zhu from Sydney, Australia -- the young model is frequently praised for her "fierce" walk by her modeling friends. During this season of the British Style Collective, Zhu was even fortunate enough to close most of the shows, but one of her finales ended up in a stumble down the runway.
"It was way too quick for me to think about it," Zhu explains in this episode of We Love Your Genes. "But I just got up straight away, kept walking like nothing had happened." After her graceful recovery, Zhu's friends came together to lighten the blow with some retail therapy.
Watch the moment in this episode of We Love Your Genes!

I’m so excited TODAY is the launch of my NEW @koraorganics Turmeric Brightening and Exfoliating Mask 2-in-1!! I am obsessed with exfoliating and this is my at-home instant facial that I have spent the last year developing. I’m so happy to finally share it with you all! It’s a 2-in-1 so it can be used as a wash-off exfoliator or a leave on mask for a deeper treatment. It will leave your skin feeling super soft, smooth and radiant ✨. You’re going to love it! Check out my story & Shop link in bio 😘 xxx
