South Sudanese model, Ajak Deng has taken to social media with a suicide note in which she expressed how tired she is with the difficulties that comes with modeling.
Ajak was discovered after her parents fell victim to the civil war in Sudan and fled to Kenya where they spent three years.
Since her discovery in 2008, she has modelled for Dior, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Marc Jacobs and Jean Paul Gaultier.
Expressing suicidal thoughts, Ajak Deng blamed some of the people she works with on the difficulties she’s faced in her career.
“The people that work with you constantly tell you that you’re a horrible person. If I do commit suicide, know that it’s because of you,” she said.
“I am happy to announce that I am officially done with the fashion industry, I will be moving back to Australia in order to live the life I fully deserved. Which is real life. I can no longer deal with the fakes and the lies. My life is too short for this dramatic life” Deng wrote.
She however returned to the runway a week later.
