"I like breaking these doors down so that we don’t have any more firsts, but it’s nice to be first so that you can open that door and let so many people in after you," Banks explained.
The supermodel has been knocking down barriers since her early career. Banks was the first Black model on both the cover of Victoria's Secret catalog and the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.
She was also the first female model to coverGQ.
"I’m used to the model [firsts], but today’s the first time I’m hearing this first Dancing with the Stars black woman, I never even thought of that," Banks admitted.
