Ashley Graham is somewhat of a superhero in the ‘plus sized’ modelling agency. She make history with a Sports Illustrated cover and now has become an inspiration to girls and women everywhere.
Sadly, things were not always smooth sailing for Ashley and those that were meant to help her get a start in the modelling agency did anything but.
“I had agencies telling me that I had to lose weight,” Graham told People. “I had one that waved money in my face and said, ‘If you lose more lbs – pounds – you can make a lot more of this,’ and he was waving $20 bills in my face.”
Thankfully Ashley did not listen to them and remained confident in her body.
