I did a photo shoot. At that time I didn't know there were opportunities for curvy models. My mother just wanted nice pictures of me. Her friend's daughter, who is a model, suggested a photographer. The photographer was amazed and said "Wow you're so photogenic and the camera loves you! Whose your agent?" I told her I didn't have a agent and she then mentioned a local agent. After the shoot I sent in pictures to the agency and that day I got a reply! The rest is history! Oprah 2.If you could spend an hour with any Celebrity, who would it be and why? Oprah!
