Add Karlie Kloss to the long list of celebs who have addressed feminism—but she only touched on it a little bit.

Because the 22-year-old supermodel and current It-Girl has a bunch of other things to talk about—social media, being around celebrities, going back to school, among other things—during her interview with Porter magazine (on sale April 3).

So what does Karlie have to say about feminism?

"I grew up in a house with four women—it's hard not to be a feminist," Kloss states, and adds that she feels able to adapt to different crowds. "I feel a bit like a chameleon. Not only in the way that I can adapt to different circles and feel really at ease, but it is part of my job to be a chameleon. I find it a challenge to physically take on a different character at each show."

But let's be real, Taylor Swift's bestie's circle is usually A-listers, fashion models and Hollywood stars, and while that might make most of us sweat, Kloss admits it doesn't really faze her anymore.

"I'm a bit numbed by celebrity at this point. It's being able to get to know people I have admired from afar and actually recognizing that everyone's just a normal person. I see people more for who they actually are."

Speaking of normal, Karlie recently revealed that she's going back to school at New York University for—wait for it—computer coding!

"I'm not in any rush to get a degree in four years. I'm figuring out how I'm going to balance it all, but I am planning to take a class in the fall," she tells the mag.

"I definitely could not get a job as a coder yet. But it is something I am fascinated by, even if it is not the profession I choose. Simply having the comprehension of the way that it works, having the ability to speak that language and to be able to not only comprehend it, but write and build something—the world is built on code."

You can say that again.
