The size-12 stunner once told Into the Gloss that she’s living her dream. She’s “always wanted to model” and was even signed to Wilhelmina and Muse NY. 

“When I came up originally for open calls, I was going to just regular agencies because I didn’t realize that I wouldn’t be able to fit in,” she recalled. “There are two different options. There was a lot of ‘Can you drop some sizes?’”

But once buzz picked up — and mindsets expanded — she finally found her fit in the industry. Being cast for Vogue Italia “had other people in the industry perk up a bit and say, ‘Why don’t we try this too?’” she explained. “It was what got the ball rolling … I’ve always been available and skilled and knowing that you’re able to do all these things, but you’re like, ‘Just put me in, Coach! I want to show you!’’’
