Meet Jerri - Ms Curvaceous UK Mentor & Ambassador,
Curve Model & Former Finalist.
1) Why did you apply for MCUK?
I entered MsCurvaceousUK because my little girl was going through a tough time at school. She was feeling incredibly low and I saw it as an opportunity to try and build my own confidence whilst also showing her that you can do anything you put your mind to even if you are made to feel like it would be impossible. She believed in me way more than I ever had myself and wanted me to go for it so I did. And boy am I glad I did!
2) What was the MCUK competition experience like?
From start to finish I have to say it was one of the best experiences of my life. After my audition I left feeling like a weight had been lifted of my shoulders. Being around ladies oozing with confidence, curves and beauty made me feel as though I could relax and embrace my figure for the first time in my life. I wasn't worried about people judging me. Such a refreshing feeling.
Making finals and training along side ladies that have gone on to become very close friends of mine was such a great experience. The choreographer Reuben made me evolve from 'a mummy trying her hardest not to break her ankles whilst walking in stilettos' into a Curve Model. Each rehearsal I found my confidence would grow and grow. Everybody was noticing it.
Walking on the Catwalk at the finals was the best feeling. Watching my little girl grinning from ear to ear at me, knowing how much this journey had helped us both was a moment I will never forget. I was so happy to see my friend win she was truly deserving but In my eyes all of us had won in our own ways because we had all our own reasons for being on that catwalk.
3) What does being an Ambassador of the MCUK brand involve in your opinion?
I love modelling. But without being given the opportunity to share what I have learnt on my own personal journey and trying my best to inspire others I wouldn't feel my job is being done properly. I KNOW beauty has no size and I pray the day will come that the future generation are able to look and see women of all shapes and sizes in their magazines and throughout the media. The way it should be. Being an ambassador gives me the chance to stand up for all that Ms Curvaceous UK represents and to be part of a team of like-minded strong women.
4) Since your involvement in MCUK what opportunities have you taken?
I try to take all opportunities I'm given with open arms. I have worked alongside models I had admired for years and recently I had a chance to mentor and run part of the MCUK confidence workshops. I have talked on the behalf of Curve models on T.V and I have built bridges with some brands in the U.S.
5) What does 2015 hold for you?
Hopefully many wonderful things. I don't like to talk too much about projects before they are set in stone but there are a few amazing ones on the cards! I would love to go over to the U.S and shoot there! This year is about growth and spreading the word for us curvies!
