First we wanted more representation for plus size women in modelling. Then we had plus size women 'reclaiming' the term.

Yes, I Was a Glamour Model, But Do I Have to Be Defined By This Sexed-Up Image of My Eighteen-Year-Old Self Forever?

It dwells on me as I stare at the Internet version of myself, I don't want to delete my past entirely... People change. People can be more than one thing.
