“My sexuality has only helped me in every opportunity that I’ve been given,” says Elite model and MTV VJ/News correspondent Kim Stolz. “I feel like when I was on America’s Next Top Model, I was able to break and transcend stereotypes by simply being a lesbian,” says the New York native. Stolz began her new career as an MTV News correspondent last July, and hopes the experience will allow her to springboard into a future career in news reporting and political programming. “I hope that I represent the LGBTQ community well,” says Stolz, “but also that I appeal to a wider community by working hard to VJ, model and report efficiently.” You can bet that the world will be watching. –JB
