I’m a model, who loves my curves and isn’t afraid to show them.
When I first started modeling, I was told I would be a catalogue model forever. I’ve now been on 11 covers in under two years.
This confidence is not something that happens overnight. I have been working on it for a long time.
People always talk about how kind I am, and to me, that’s a far more important than complimenting my looks.
Women of all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, we all want to be clothed, we all want luxury, we want the right fit and I don't think that is a bad or hard request.
I think that faith is definitely something that got me through the hard times in fashion.
