Amanda Boles was born in Jacksonville, Florida to a Navy family. Her mother served 21 years, providing her with the chance to travel and live abroad in places such as Italy and Japan. But she was primarily raised in southern Maryland, until 2012 when she moved to Baltimore to advance her own career in veterinary emergency medicine. Following a path she felt strongly connected to due to her love of animals.
As a mother of two, last year she decided to change her life and underwent weight loss surgery. Aside from the positive health effects it also helped her build up confidence and strengthen her self esteem. Everything was falling into place, and then a new love came. She found herself falling in love with plus sized modeling and the platform it could provide her to encourage and uplift other people like her. Most people do not search out the role model image but when it fell into her lap she embraced it.
She has started modeling in the Baltimore area, taking on every new chance that is presented, best described as thirsty for life. With her ambition, creativity, and desire to learn her beauty is more than a surface view all of which come out on camera and in print. The sky is the first floor and her dreams are the limit for her, endless possibilities even as a new comer.

The reason I inspire to be a Plus Size Model is because, what better way to show the world that beauty comes in all different shapes and sizes. It took me some years to understand that just because I’m a bigger girl, doesn’t mean I’m any less attractive or beautiful than the models that walk the runways in Paris. Or the fact that I can’t walk into a Five, Seven, Nine and pick up a thirteen or fourteen with my friends, doesn’t mean I should be ashamed of how I look. I now understand that it doesn’t matter wether you’re big, small, white, black, one or one-hundred, beauty lies within and comes from self love.
Hi, my name is Dianne Johnson and I live in Northern New Jersey. The majority of my life I have always been the tall, black, fat girl in my schools and basically anywhere I went it also didn’t help that all of my friends were much shorter than me and nowhere near my complexion or weight. It definitely didn’t help that my father (also best friend) was reminding me every day that I needed to loose weight and stop eating so much. He stopped worrying so much about my weight when I started taking care of him he was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer over a year ago and that’s when I lost my way. As of February 27 of 2017 I decided that modeling was something that was important to me because I wanted to share my positivity with others who look like me or even people who don’t look like me I want everybody to know that if you’re beautiful on the inside you will always be beautiful on the outside. So my platform for being a plus size model is body positivity for all , and knowing your self worth I’m still working on that one.

Body Diversity is important to me and has become increasingly important to the fashion industry. I feel that through modeling, I can contribute to the message of body positivity and it’s importance.

Since my body shape has changed, at first I cried but I’ve now embraced it , I’ve been told to show my curves off and try and get into plus size modeling I would love to it would show people you don’t have to be a size 0 to model and be body beautiful. There is so much stigma around body image and if I can make just one girl feel confident for showing curves that would be awesome.
I want to be able through modeling to get the message out there that you can be beautiful any size and also being healthy too. Just because I’m classed as plus size does not mean I don’t take care of my self I horse ride and swim 3 times a week, ever since I saw Ashley Graham rocking a swim suit got me wanting to do the same to show my curves off in front of a camera to be appreciated for the body I have and to inspire other plus sized girls. I would love nothing more than to be a “plus size model” big is definitely beautiful
I’m plus model, Devorah. I currently live in Georgia. I’ve been modeling for almost 3 years. I started out singing and it never crossed my mind that I could ever be a model until someone asked if I ever tried it. Fast forward to now, I’ve grown tremendously as a model. I’ve been signed to a well known agency in New York. I’ve had the opportunity to walk in tons of shows (i.e. Full Figure Fashion Week, Ashley Stewart’s Love your Curves Tour, etc). I’ve also worked with major brand and company, Ashley Stewart for their online marketing, which also included their summer look book for 2017.
I’ve worked for the brand, Curlbox on their June and July editions. Now, thinking about the future, I plan to continue my journey as a model. I want to empower and uplift women through my platform. I want to venture into acting and refocus on music at some point, but right now, I’m fully invested into this industry and what it has to offer.
