Growing up in rural Alaska, 18-year-old Quannah Chasinghorse (Han Gwich'in and Oglala Lakota) didn't see herself as beautiful.

"I have really Lakota facial features," the teen told Native News Online. "I have the whole bump on my nose, I have really high cheekbones. I always felt like I was like that one ugly kid in class, because everyone just loved all the white girls."

Now, Chasinghorse is setting a new beauty standard. This month, she is featured on the front cover of Vogue Mexico in the second shoot she landed since signing with IMG models-an international management company-in December.
