About Salem Mitchell

The distinct freckled beauty that captivated Instagram has captured herself a modeling career, lending her uniquely qualified voice towards empowerment and equality advocacy. One of Fashionista’s “17 Fashion Influencers To Watch In 2018,” Salem Mitchell’s initial rise to supermodel had its base in cyber-bullying, gaining popularity through negative remarks that she “looked like a banana or a cheetah.” Rising above the bullying to foster 360K+ Instagram and Twitter followers with a-list appearances from Vogue and NY Fashion Week, Salem take on trolls through awareness-raising exposés on cyber-bullying and cultural appropriation stressing the power and beauty of non-conformity.
