Interview by Colleen Stovall

Colleen:           You hit the plus size modeling industry in 2010 during a model search for Forever 21+. Did you always want to be a plus size model?

Mariesther:     Yes, I have always dreamed and imagined myself strutting down a runway and being on the cover of Vogue.

Colleen:           Do you consider yourself a role model for plus size women? If so, does that affect the way you model or which clients you work with?

Mariesther:     I do, I feel that it is really important to carry and present yourself well and be proud of who you are. By embracing my body and curves, I feel that in a sense I am helping women all over feel and be comfortable in their own skin. Confidence is not only key but sexy!

Colleen:           You turned a lot of heads during Berlin Fashion Week strutting nude in the streets for navabi’s “Finally” campaign. Were you nervous about the project? How did you feel about the video once it was complete?

Mariesther:     I was excited and nervous! I had never been to Berlin, let alone walked their streets naked, but I took the experience by the reins and just went with it! Once we were done shooting, I was super anxious to see the results, and when it released I was just in love! I felt accomplished and proud of myself for stepping out and just going with it.

Colleen:           Has your career changed since the navabi project? If so, how?
