Shawna is a single mother of 3 from South Boston, Virginia. Throughout her life, she has struggled with weight issues. She made a decision that changed her life; to have a barbaric procedure. This proved to be a journey to test her faith, discipline, and self-control. What she did not realize is that it would transform her mindset. 


Through the weight loss journey, she found her inner beauty. She had thought, like many little girls, of being a model. She never thought seriously about it until she began to see the appearance of plus size models and opportunities popping up locally. She reached to answer a model a model call in Charlotte, NC. She was accepted as a brand ambassador and model.  She simply asked herself one question that would start her on her journey to model. That question was simply, “What can I do to be a model?” 


This simple question led to her signing her first modeling contract. To date, Shawna has done countless photo shoots, six fashion shows, filmed her first scene in a movie (Fear to be Brave), and has had two articles written about her in the local newspaper. Her natural curiosity and enthusiasm has brought her to many upcoming opportunities:

I love to play football, travel, meet new people and learn new things. I am currently in school for welding at Midlands Technical College. 


I wanna be a model too...because I have always been amazed at how people are able to show different sides of themselves through expression.

Jayla Wright. from Charlotte, North Carolina  21 years old. I wanna be a model too because I would like the chance to be able to make a brand for myself and my well being and to create as many opportunities as I possibly can by showcasing my talents to the public and different fashion designers along the way. I also want to show people that in this day and age you can be any size and still make your dreams become a reality. The world of fashion and image is always evolving and beauty is in everyone, and once you've found it you just have to embrace it.




 Courtney Michelle Cunningham. I'm currently 39 years young, and a single mother of a beautiful 16-year-old young lady. Born and raised in a small town named Huntington, West Virginia. I later relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina in 2000 not long after I graduated from high school. I've always had the dream of being in front of the camera modeling as my career helping others reach their goals or overcome their fears or maybe help someone feel beautiful. I attended Evie Mansfield Modeling Agency in Virginia Beach as a teen and was able to gain experience. I modeled some promotional events at the Motor Speedway Race Track in Concord NC but set it to the side once my daughter was born.


About a year ago, I resumed the pursuit of my modeling career. I've had the opportunity of participating in fashion shows such as Jump fashion show and Off the Hanger Inaugural Fashion Show, as well as working with many amazing people like Brian Johnson, Jahalia McCall, Scott Hart, and Leon Craig. Currently a promotional model for Konnected Magazine. I'm looking for positive professional growth to contribute to my portfolio as well as to gain exposure to different opportunities that I come across on my Journey of becoming a better me. Can’t think of a better place to start than here. Sounds like a great opportunity!

LaToya Henry, a native New Yorker from Brooklyn. I currently live in Charlotte, NC. I am a USPS Rural Carrier. Yes, I slang mail for a living. But carrying mail is not the only thing that I want for my life. I am independent, motivated, talented, and inspiratory.


 As a plus size woman over 35, I felt a need for self- improvement. I want to spark motivation and Improvement for body positivity and inspiring growth. This hungry need is what brought me into the modeling industry. I’ve always been confident, despite the lack of embrace for plus sized women. I love to inspire.  People have recognized that my style and poise has motivated and inspired others both men and women to enhance their talents.  This prompted me to joined Juicy Body Goddess in Jan of 2018. I joined because this agency allowed juicy women to be themselves, embracing all of our curves. I’ve done volunteer work for fashion shows, training for runway walks, photoshoots, and profile development.  Networking with these wonderful people has brought me to Jerido Productions, a groundbreaking Company that’s pushing the envelope for expanding many people like me that’s self-branding.


 My brand and message to all is Pick Your Head Up! Don’t allow anyone or anything to stop you from being the best you. Everyone is a model.  So be inspired about yourself. My plan is to instill positivity, educate on what tools and resources are out there for self-development, and help others reach their best potential, no matter what profession is desired.




Carlissa Cook, I am originally from Bennettsville, South Carolina. I currently reside in Charlotte, North Carolina. During the Spring of 2015, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Francis Marion University in Florence, South Carolina. My hobbies consist of the following: painting, drawing, cooking, playing video games, and not to forget…modeling.


My love of modeling was instilled in me during my pre-teens…thanks to my wonderful mother.

During those years, my mom noticed that I had “it”…”it” being that indescribable skill to know how to make something stand out and shine. As I became older, I noticed that I was a natural at knowing how to make an outfit POP! This ability grew through gaining experience while working at clothing stores. For example, I would pick out outfits for customers who would also compliment me on my selection for them. Meanwhile, I was also admired by the same customers for how well I looked in the outfits I wore. I’m proud to say that I’ve modeled for Charlotte Seen's Fashion Week:

Brittany is well known as Chocolate. I am a single parent of one little boy. I reside in Columbus Ga. All I wanted to do since I was a little girl was model. I have reached out to several different agencies, however, my financial situation and being a single parent has kept me from pursuing my dream. One day I received an email invitation for a model call from I Wanna Be A Model Too. I almost didn’t consider going, but something told me to go. Well as you can see, here I am. I am a model too and moving forward towards my dream. One day I hope to be ripping the runway.


Thank you for having me. Love, Chocolate
