Back in 1986, just as Cindy Crawford was on her way to becoming an internationally-known model, the shy 20-year-old from Dekalb, Illinois, made her debut appearance on The Oprah Show. In this clip, Cindy and her agent share the story of how she was discovered. Cindy also reveals that she initially had concerns about turning to modeling full-time, because school had always been such a high priority for her. She describes making the difficult decision to place her Engineering degree at Northwestern on hold in order to pursue this new path.
