If Coco Rocha had her way, all underprivileged kids would be prancing like leprechauns. The Canadian model is setting up a charity to let kids, who couldn't afford it otherwise, learn to dance. Close to her own heart is Irish dance - it was her own claim to fame when talent scouts spotted her in a dance competition when she was only 14.

Teen Vogue reported, "Coco has fit seamlessly into the fashion world, strutting catwalks at Marc Jacobs and Anna Sui, shooting campaigns for Lanvin and Balenciaga (twice), and making model pals like Behati Prinsloo. But the eighteen-year-old manages to keep both feet on the ground. She plans on working with a New York City charity to teach her main love, dance, to underprivileged kids, and is the first to admit, "It's still a little exciting to see myself in magazines!"
