Being glammed up and fabulolus is fun...don't get me wrong. But I'm the happiest when I get opportunities to connect with young women and share my experiences with the intention of inspiring anyone who needs it. Speaking at Barnard College was a dream come true for me. The evening started with me speaking about my background and what I struggled with as an aspiring model and plus-size woman in a skinny girl society. The evening ended with the girls asking me to show them how to runway and let me tell you that was FUN. My overall goal with any work that I do is to be someone that younger girls and women can look up to and represent in a positive and realistic light. Thank you, Barnard College, for letting me share.
