She said: “The word ‘diversity’ is everywhere today but it did not exist when I started.
“I’ve always wanted people to be treated equally.
“I was recently in a city in the South of France, where I was invited to participate in an event in a hotel who’s name I will not mention.

“They did not want to let my friend and I in because of the colour of my skin.”
Speaking to Paris Match, she added: “The guy at the entrance pretended that the place was full but he was letting other people in.
“It is for these kinds of revolting moments that I will continue to speak up and make myself heard.”
