Video Q&A: Best advice I've received

*********

Twentieth century writer Josh Billings once said, "When a man comes to me for advice, I find out the kind of advice he wants, and I give it to him." While that may hold true for Billings (whose real name is Henry Wheeler Shaw -- Billings is a pen name), it doesn't hold true for all of SI's swimsuit models. We sat down with Jessica Perez, Kate Bock, Katherine Webb, Emily DiDonato and Kate Upton and asked them to tell us the best advice they ever received. Here are some of the responses:

Jessica Perez: "What my dad said: 'Education is the only thing that no one can take away from you.' So that's why I stuck with school and finished my degree."

Kate Bock: "Get enough sleep because if you don't you go crazy."

Emily DiDonato: "The best piece of advice, which my parents gave to me is to be yourself no matter what they say. No matter what, just go into everything trying to be true to yourself and you can't go wrong."

Kate Upton: "When I was younger my mom said, 'I can never start a fight. but I can always match a tone' and I hold true to that."
