Hi Melody, so great to have you join us again. For folks who might have missed our earlier conversations, can you please take a minute to briefly introduce yourself?
I am Melody Williams, I am 39 years old. I am a Atlanta Native born at the infamous Grady Memorial Hospital lol. I am a plus size advocate, motivational speaker pushing for all causes with positive outcomes. Pushing the narrative for plus size modeling here in Atlanta as it is so overlooked. And also reaching out to all people in any times of needs, motivating them to understand what they go through and what they can overcome.
What does plus size modeling mean to you?
Plus size modeling means the WORLD to me. It is something that I know can open the door for some self love, self motivation and just living in the skin you are in no matter your size. The stigma behind “BIGGER PEOPLE” (MALE OR FEMALE) not loving them selves or people not so much wanting to be bothered with “FAT” people will stop here! I am on a mission to get people to understand that we are still people REGUARDLESS of size and you will RESPECT us as such!
What do you plan on achieving from the plus size modeling industry?
More exposure to show off ALL types of people. It’s not enough plus size bigger people being flaunted in the industry REGUARDLESS of what they started of with, my goal is to end the size thing once and for ALL. BECAUSE ALL PRETTY FACES, NICE ATTITUDES&ALL BODY TYPES should be celebrated like the rest of the people. It’s not fair to only celebrate a TYPE. WE ALL ARE HUMAN.
Do you see yourself pushing other plus size women to open up?
YES I DO, I ALREADY HAVE AND IM WORKING ON SOME MORE!!! IM ALSO WORKING ON MEN TOO, WE ALL HAVE A LOOK THAT CAN BE WARRANTED WHEN WE FIND IT, NO SEX LEFT OUT!!! ANYBODY PLUS SIZE, NO MATTER THE COMMUNITY!! IM HERE FOR ALL!!! I HAVE OPENED UP AGES FROM 10 YRS OLD-51…..DONT PLAY WITH ME WHEN IT COMES TO THIS SELF LOVE THING BABY, I MAKE YOU FIND ALL THE LOVE WITHIN YOURSELF💋
