I’m so excited to finally announce that I am now signed to True Model Management (@truemodelmgt) in NYC! 🖤 As a ‘bigger’ girl, I never thought I’d be able to fulfill my dream of modeling in the U.S… I grew up being surrounded by + seeing + hearing what the public and media said was ‘model worthy’, ‘beauty queen worthy’ or even just ‘beautiful’ thinking that I’m supposed to drastically change myself into something that I’m not just so I could ‘fit in’ or succeed ; Especially coming from an Asian country wherein the standards are even harder to measure up to… Well, thank God times have changed and the industry is now more diverse and accepting of different types of women and men! No matter the size, color, race, or background: YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL AND YOU ARE WORTHY! Through the years I have learned to love myself even through rough times and even if nobody else did. Now, I am the strong and confident woman I’ve always wanted to be. Or should I say ‘confidently beautiful’ and thicc! 🍑 Thank you True Model Management for taking a chance on me! I won’t let you down. See you soon, New York! ✨ Thank you, Lord. 🙏🏻 P.S.

Her hashtags say, “#truemodelmanagement #truemode l#truecurves #curvymodel #curvyfashion #plussize #plussizemodel #curvesarebeautiful #curvyconfidence #nyc

And here’s how netizens have reacted to this according to an entertainment site:

At least this girl has achievements. This person has a goal. Has a motivation to work. Has better things to do.

Ang mga hashtags alam mong may pinaglalaban.

may advantage pa rin kasi matangkad siya kahit na malaman siya.

As much as anyone could remember, she is among the most-bashed beauty queen for some apparent reasons. She was criticized and body-shamed on social media but she proved to everyone that she is something and more than all those words.
