I've dreamt of becoming a plus model for as long as i could remember. i remember looking at models in my mom's plus size catalogs, wanting to take pictures and dress like them. At one point, i became extremely discouraged because i was way too focused on if other people thought i would make it in the industry. Only recently I've established the courage to break out of that mindset, looking for others approval and started noticing that i am good enough. I made a promise to myself last year that in 2018 i would go for it and attend more fashion, modeling casting calls and networking events. So far I've knocked Four events off the lists (2 Rebdoll Events; including a casting call, veuve clicquot's Polo Classic and this FFFW x Ashley Stewart Event).
I Also got the chance to meet up with a youtube babe! Latonya, the mastermind behind Curves On The Move. Latonya and i have been interacting with each other through social media for a few years and i was super excited to meet such a dope and inspiring soul in person! (I'm a total stan, but tried to compose myself lol).
The FFFW Cruise
When we got to the pier, we were welcomed by a photographer who took our photos in front of FFFW's Sign and backdrop. Once we finished our mini photoshoot, we boarded the ship. The ambiance of the event was breathtaking. It was like we were having a tour of what heaven would look like. Everyone was dressed in their best all white outfits and the decor of the ship matched. We found our seats and conversed with a few influencers, nibbled on some food, then got to watch plus-size men and women walk the runway. Whats a FFFW cruise without a fashion show at sea! And finally got to dance the night away on the dance floor.
It's amazing how FFFW got so many beautiful people together in one place to celebrate being full figured and amazing! There was nothing but positive energy and so many opportunities to network (you know i had to take advantage of this!) with models, fashion designers, influencers and people who genuinely want to support You.
