When Yolanda Hadid isn’t busy hosting her TV show, Making a Model, or accompanying her supermodel daughters at fashion shows, she’s jetsetting off somewhere far away for pure relaxation.
The mother of Gigi and Bella spent time in Stockholm this month, not to simply be a tourist but speak at the two-day Brilliant Minds Summit. It’s a leadership platform of a global community and movement shaping the future by challenging the present. It aims to leverage the spirit of the entrepreneur, a fearless, free and results-driven mindset, to convene great people to do great things for the world together, not apart.
Hadid, who lives with Lyme Disease, took some time to “experience” Stockholm’s brilliance by posing next to an angel rising statue, and strolling through cobblestone streets. Next stop: her hometown of Holland.
Check here for a list of summertime must-do’s in Stockholm.

❤️ The fenomen, the free thinkers who don’t succumb to fear but demonstrates resilience, values and vision in the face of exponential challenge…… Thank you god for granting me all the above… Resilience it took to battle through the public ridicule of those doubting my chronic Lyme diagnosis as I fought my way to remission with the unwavering core support of my 3 children, my reason for living……. I will never forget the confusion, the fear and frustration I felt for the loss of my life while fighting a disease that has no cure…….. It will be engraved in my consciousness forever! With a heart full of love and compassion I will stand for the injustice that there are millions of people suffering like I did without the support of healthcare providers or finances to sustain a life in this endless lonely journey. It’s what Keeps me awake at night! The lack of support, compassion and understanding for all those suffering from invisible disabilities is something we need to work on as global citizens. I did not find a cure but I will keep this conversation alive until the day that we do…. This is not Singular, together we are a movement to bring change to the worldwide epidemic of invisible diseases. So keep on fighting, one day at a time is good enough….. You might feel alone but know that our community is connected energetically and we are in it to win it!! Thank you @brilliantmindsstkhl for letting me be part of this extraordinary conference and share my story amongst the many brilliant minds that are changing the world. Sweden I love you, you culture is a perfect reminder of what’s important in life 🙏 #Consciousness #BelieveMe #LymediseaseAwareness #WeMustFindACure #AffordableForAll
