Karrine Steffans

Karrine says the years she spent as a music video dancer taught her to value herself over money and fame. "I have me. I have God. I have my son. Everything else is extra," she says. "It's taught me who I am, and who I was meant to be.

"I am no longer in the business of making other people look good at my expense. And that's what I wish for the women who are in the industry."

Karrine says she plans to tell her son the truth about her experiences so that he can learn the importance of treating all women with respect.
