“SKIMS for NEW YORK FASHION WEEK 2020 ✨
“I still can’t get over the fact that I walked for @skims @kimkardashianfor my first fashion show in NYC! Its so surreal to think that out of more than 1000 girls, I was one of the girls chosen to be part of the show. ✨
“In the past few years, I went through a lot of online bullying and body shaming… But I’m glad that what was perceived as something negative about me to many people was the very thing that got me here. ✨
“I’m so proud to share this experience with beautiful women of all shapes + sizes + ages + colors. Its so amazing to see how the fashion industry here has evolved into a more inclusive and diverse one. The women who stand up for inclusivity, diversity, strength, and self love inspire me to love myself unconditionally and to be okay with the body I have. Thank you. ✨
“Also, big thanks to my agency @truemodelmgt for taking a chance on me and believing in me! ✨
