My name is Cherise Cuff. I am 37 years old and live in Boston, Massachusetts. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice, work full-time as a lead preschool teacher and a mother of seven. I recently started modeling and I am loving it and know I am supposed to be in front of a camera or on a runway. Unfortunately society’s view of an ideal body has kept many of us from being recognized for the gorgeous women that we are and I just want to be acknowledged for the beautiful voluptuous curvy angel that I am.
I’m a very positive person who loves uplifting people and motivating them to love themselves first before able to love someone else. My dreams of becoming a model is to break the stereotypes of full figured or plus size women allowing others or better yet informing others that you dont have to be a socially accepted size(0,2,4etc..) To be sexy, sensual and fabulous.

As a child I was always thin. As I entered my late teens I began to gain weight. I had wanted to model but being only 5’3″ and already a size 12 there was no way I thought I would be able to. I grew up watching my mom yo-yo diet and I have struggled with my weight my entire adult life. About 8 years ago I was a size 14/16 about 205# from a lot of walking. I started having some medical issues and slowly started to gain all the weight back.
Holly Mullins lives life large. She knows that some of the most beautiful things come in larger sizes, like minds, hearts, and bodies. As a natural healer with clients across the country, she understands this on a deep level. She embraces her natural curves and wishes more women would do so; she would like to change the established criteria for beauty to include those whose curves give wider measure. Holly’s passion for modeling is also a calling. She lives her life to be an example to others and she wants to be part of the demise of one of the last areas of prejudice, weight. The lens of the camera sees the truth of the human body, that it is beautiful in all its forms.
