Catch Up with CariDee English

Cycle 7’s Top Model winner and Seventeen cover girl CariDee English stopped by the Seventeen offices yesterday to catch up with the Web team. Despite getting caught in the rain, she looked absolutely gorgeous and was in goofy spirits. Here’s what she told us about her career in the last few months!

Her life as a cover girl
Take a look at newsstands and you can find CariDee on the cover of Social Life, Wedding Style,Cover magazine — and yours truly, Seventeen (check out page 58 of the June 2007 issue to see CariDee modeling some supercute summer hairstyles!).

This year has been a total whirlwind for CariDee, 21, who recently landed a national ad campaign with JC Penney. She moved from her native small town of Fargo, ND, to Williamsburg, NY (a trendy neighborhood in Brooklyn). She’s become friends with big-name celebs (Molly Sims, Vanessa Minnillo, Nick Lachey), but always keeps grounded by talking with her Top Modelmomma, Miss Tyra Banks. Most of the time, they keep in touch by meeting for dinner, e-mailing, and talking on the phone.

Her role in the National Psoriasis Foundation
Recently, CariDee was named the spokesperson of the National Psoriasis Foundation, an honor she couldn’t wait to tell us all about! For most of her life, CariDee struggled with psoriasis, a skin disease that almost ruined her dreams of modeling.

People who suffer from psoriasis often have large areas of scaly red skin all over their body. As you can probably guess, this had a huge effect on CariDee’s self-esteem as a teenager.

As the spokesperson for the National Psoriasis Foundation, CariDee plans to spread the word about the disease, her hope for a cure, and forming psoriasis support groups. Want to find out what you can do? Check out Psoriasis.org.
