Former president Shimon Peres hosted supermodel Naomi Campbell at the Peres Center for Peace on Tuesday, in honor of International Women’s Day.

Peres presented Campbell with the “Women Leading Change” award in honor of her work for women and communities.

“Leaders like you, Mr. Peres, and Nelson Mandela, are what make the world a better place,” said Campbell during a joint interview with Peres. “You inspire me.”

“My mother is an anchor in my life. She raised me alone and made me believe in myself and not give up,” Campbell continued.

At the meeting, held at the center’s Jaffa headquarters, Campbell was presented with a soccer jersey from a girl’s soccer team, part of a Peres Center project that includes Palestinian and Jewish girls in 12 different communities across Israel.

This wasn’t Campbell’s first visit in Israel; she was here in 2012 to celebrate her 42nd birthday with her former boyfriend, Russian businessman Vladislav Doronin.
