While Kimora Lee Simmons-Hounsou is certainly a celebrity, she took the time to go to different classroom's to greet the kids. I could see that this wasn't just another pr opportunity for her. For those that don't know Kimora background, she was once just a regular public school child like the children at Alain L. Locke Elementary School. It was great to see her come out to the Harlem community to encourage and inspire the next generation. I heard through the grapevine she might be back to be principal for the day. Her first order of business. No more fake nails! Even in elementary school Kimora believe you should practice fabulosity.
