The American lingerie brand has officially introduced Filipino-American Kelsey Merritt as one of its runway models on Wednesday.

“It’s a dream come true for Kelsey Merritt,” the lingerie brand captioned the photo while tagging Merritt.

Victoria’s Secret also uploaded a video on their Instagram TV with Merritt answering some questions about her favorite food, favorite TV shows, her style icons, her pet peeves, and many more.

Merritt even emphasized on her Filipino roots during the interview.

She also gave a meaningful advice to aspiring models by saying, “Dream big and dream hard, and work hard. Don’t stop pushing yourself to your limits… Don’t look at others’ success, don’t worry about others, don’t compare yourself to others. Just focus on yourself and you’ll go far”.

Aside from Merritt, Victoria’s Secret also introduced other models who will walk the runway such as Georgia Fowler, Isilda Moreira, Alexina Graham, and Frida Aasen.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is an annual fashion show usually held by November or December. The biggest names in the fashion and music industry gather for this event.
