Meet The MCUK Ambassadors; Angelina


Meet Angelina - Ms Curvaceous UK Ambassador 

1) Why did you apply for MCUK?

I applied for MCUK because growing up as a teen into my adult life friends and even strangers in the street would often stop and tell me ''you should be a model, you've got the height and the looks''
But in the back of my mind growing up as a teenager in the 90's I knew that modelling would never happen because I wasn't stick thin. So I just took the compliments, said thank you and put them to the back of my mind. I was in a bad relationship too at the time, that I developed an eating disorder to become thin. I thought being thin equalled being attractive as a 17-19 year old girl. Thankfully now, I've grown to accept that I will always have curves, then I came across MCUK recently. I remember thinking finally, an agency/ organisation that promotes curves. So I jumped at the opportunity, it was also great to help bring some confidence back.

2) So, you weren’t picked as one of the 20 finalists, but you were given the extraordinary opportunity to become an Ambassador for the brand. What were your initial feelings when you found out you weren’t a finalist?

When I found out I didn't make the final 20, I was gutted, who wouldn't of been. All of us that entered would loved to of been taken through. I was just proud that I actually entered it, I wouldn't of done that a couple years ago. I knew deep down that doing something like the MCUK audition was just going to be the beginning for me and push me to seek other avenues into the modelling industry.

3) What does it mean to you to be named an Ambassador of the MCUK brand?
When I got the phone call, my hands were sweating with nerves as to what the phone call could be about haha. Then the role of Ambassador was explained to me, and of course I jumped at the chance, I think I said Thank you oh my God about 20 times to Theo. As a young girl growing up surrounded by magazines, celebrities and diets I know how much I let it affect my mindset as a young girl, so now i'm adamant not to let those sorts of things affect the women of today, I can't wait to start promoting that curves are ok and sexy. After all there is such a thing as being curvy but fit.

4) What does 2015 hold for you?
2015 has got of to a great start already with being asked to be Ambassador, I guess the world is my oyster now. I also work as a Nurse with vulnerable children both boys and girls up to the age of 18, so I can use this new role to promote body confidence, self confidence and being proud of yourself to them too.
I'm also hoping this year brings me love, my knight in shining armour, haha
