Being part of ASOTY was a real game changer for me. I never even imagined modeling was an option for someone like me so was very passive about it. I came to realise that if I wanted to see more size diversity in the industry I had to stand up and be part of that change. ASOTY gave me the opportunity, confidence and tools to do so much more with my career and actually make a difference. I’ve been able to spread the message of body diversity in media interviews, on podcasts and at special events. It’s also helped me become more proactive about getting and creating modeling opportunities and given me the self belief to deliver.
Going to Bali for the finals was one of the best and most intense weeks of my life! I gained amazing friendships and mentors, got loads of professional images & content, had a once in a lifetime experiences, all in a summer paradise! Walking the final runway I actually discovered another side to myself and what I’m capable of. That week made me feel like an actual supermodel and was surrounded with the genuine support to embrace and own that. If you want to take your work seriously and reach new heights, all while hanging with awesome people in amazing locations, then ASOTY is for you!
