Naomi Campbell fought back tears as she accepted an honorary doctorate in London.
The supermodel accepted a PHD for her contribution to the fashion industry from the University for the Creative Arts in a ceremony at the UK capital’s Royal Festival Hall.
52-year-old Naomi was seen wiping a tear from her eye as she addressed the audience while wearing her special cap and gown.
“Never let anyone change the way you feel, change the course of what you and your vision and what you want for yourself… never quit,” she told the graduates in the crowd.
The model’s mother, Valerie Morris, was watching from the audience and was given a special nod by her daughter, who praised the “very strong women” in her life.
They taught her the “Three Ds” for success – dedication, determination and drive.
The ceremony came just a day after Naomi walked the runway at Balenciaga’s Paris show alongside Kim Kardashian and Nicole Kidman.
