How did you hear about the #everyBODYModelSearch? I follow PLUS Model Magazine’s website/blog and turned on their post notifications a while back. One day I got an alert for a post announcing a model search with more details to be given the day Marla aired on HSN. I watched HSN on a Saturday and I submitted the following day! The rest was up to my votes and supporters! During our shoot, you told us about your campaign to win this model search. Can you share this story with our readers? My campaign was simple. I want others to see themselves as beautifully as possible at any given size. I’ve been anywhere from a size 8-22.

All they see are flaws. Why? Because they haven’t accepted themselves yet. What does body confidence mean to you? Body confidence is loving and liking that God-given body you have.
