Beauty - a combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight.
No where in that definition does it say what size, shape, gender or color you must be to be beautiful. We all have different taste and we see everything in this world differently than others. I see a strong woman in this photo. A woman who has spent the past six months joining in a new movement that many others have already joined. In the fashion industry anyone size 6 and above no matter their height is considered to be plus sized. The average size of a woman today is double that. Why must we have to fit into a different catagory? Why can't we just be models? For the most part we all have the same drive, motivation and dedication to do what it takes to make it somewhere as a working model. And at the beginning of the year I chose to join in the movement that stands for women of all sizes. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And just because I don't fit into a size 4 doesn't mean I can't do what a "normal size" model can. The miles on my car, the blisters on my feet and the tears of joy in my eyes say otherwise. I started this journey not even knowing how to walk in a pair of heels properly. Walking heel to toe you could hear me coming a mile away. Fast forward six months later. I walk toe to heal. I glide as I walk. My hands, shoulders, back, arms... they're all in perfect alignment. When I decided to give modeling a go I thought "how hard could it be?" Let me just say... it isn't easy. There's a way for everything. A way you must hold yourself. There's a variety of ways to walk. Your arms must move perfectly in sync with the movement of your hips and legs. I'm no where near perfect but I'm here. Continuously practicing, studying and working to make myself better each day. And I'm so excited to have found yet another thing I'm passionate about. With an amazing management company standing behind me I can't wait to see where the world takes me next
