I plan on writing my paper on Tyra Banks. There are many instances throughout the entire series that exemplify Tyra's efforts to change the images of models and how the public perceives them. One example is a particular episode in Season 6 where Tyra Banks is telling Danielle to change her accent because it's too southern and has too much twang. On a bigger picture, I want to relate this to how Tyra Banks has sort of created her own ideologies about female models and how she is trying to change how the public views models in terms of race, sex, gender, etc.
