Kaia Gerber Explains Why She Takes Social Media Breaks Sometimes

Kaia Gerber gets sporty-chic in a photo from her spread in Teen Vogue‘s Icons issue, available now.

The 15-year-old model opened up about her famous mom, Cindy Crawford, stepping back from social media and important lessons she’s learned. Check it:

On taking breaks from social media: “I try to take breaks. Everyone expects you to be on it all the time, but social media is just everyone’s best version of themselves. I try and give people a truer depiction of who I am.”

On recognizing on her mom’s fame: “I think it was only on my eighth birthday, at Disneyland, that I started to understand what was going on. I wanted to take pictures with the princesses, and everyone wanted to take pictures with her!”

On staying down-to-earth: “My parents have always taught me to be myself and to follow my instincts. They also say that you should never let what other people do affect what you want to do. It changes everything when you accept who you are and you don’t try to change yourself.”
