Size-22 model: Why I love my body and want other

Size-22 model: Why I love my body and want other women to love theirs ess Holliday made history as the largest plus-size model to be signed with a major agency. As the founder of effyourbeautystandards, the model and activist hopes to give other women the same confidence she has found after years of struggling and intense bullying. My life has turned upside-down since January when I became the largest professional model ever signed with a contract with MILK Management of London. My social media accounts blew up. I was - and still am - overwhelmed with requests for interviews, appearances and keynote speeches. Letters and emails from around the world keep pouring in. Many cheer me on, many ask for advice and many share very personal experiences that make me cry. All of this attention makes me realize how many people have been waiting for someone like me to say it"s OK to love yourself, no matter your size or shape. My story proves that you can achieve your dreams, you can be happy and you are beautiful.
