Karlie Kloss feels a ''responsibility'' to be a role model for young women.

The former Victoria's Secret Angel has thousands of fans, over 750,000 followers on Twitter and 2.9 million followers on Instagram and she accepts it's important for her to set a good example to the people who follow her career.

Karlie - who set up the Kode With Karlie scholarship with the Flatiron School, where she studied computer coding in 2014 - said: ''I do feel responsibility to be an example for young women in general. That's what Kode with Karlie is about ... There are worse things than being called sweet or being a nice girl.''

The 23-year-old model is an active social media poster and she loves to keep her Instagram account updated as often as possible.

She said: ''I feel like I travel so much I like to use (Instagram) as a way to show and share what I'm doing!''

The statuesque beauty - who is close friends with Taylor Swift - always strives to improve herself as a person and this autumn she starts a new chapter in her life when she begins a course at New York University.

Karlie - who gave up her contract with Victoria's Secret to return to education - tells the September issue of Glamour magazine: ''I didn't want to wait until I'm 30 to continue learning and challenging myself in new ways.''
