Meet The MCUK Ambassadors; Kat


Introducing Kat - Ms Curvaceous UK Ambassador & Lifestyle Blogger.

1) Why did you apply for MCUK?
2014 was a big year of changes for me, I got my smile back & committed to taking back my life in a positive way. I was on brink of depression, hating myself in ways I cannot describe. I went to my GP for help and since then I have been on a road to recovery. I started a blog and through Twitter I saw MCUK advertised. I didn't realise at the time how big the Plus Size industry was and when I saw this ad I thought why the hell not. I have always dreamt of modelling in catalogues & Magazines like Simply Be, SLiNK or Evolve but have always been discouraged because of my weight, teeth & dress size. I wanted to prove to myself that I am capable of anything I set my mind to. I want to live my dreams not just dream them.

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?
The MCUK workshop experience for me was amazing and empowering and it really affirmed to me that this is definitely the path I want to follow. I didn't believe for one second that my audition would be successful simply because of the calibre of talent that was in that room with me but I figured I could always try again if I didn't make it through. When I found out I didn't make the 20 finalists I was gutted but not surprised and I took away from the experience a lot of confidence, new friends and a lasting memory.

3) What does it mean to you to be named an Ambassador of the MCUK brand?
When I got the call from Theo over the Christmas break I couldn't contain myself. I had resided myself to the fact that the MCUK chapter of my book had been closed until the next audition.  It is such an honour to be involved with such an influential brand, that is built to inspire and empower the Curvy ladies in society. Being an Ambassador for the Brand will allow me to inspire women to realise they are beautiful.  So many ladies are facing the same insecurities I felt, many have these aspirations but aren't aware how to or simply aren't confident enough to take that step alone. I want to help them exceed their own expectations and help them embrace their inner & outer beauty and love the body they have. I want to help banish the line between sizes & promote body confidence.  Individually we can shout but together we will be heard.

4) What does 2015 hold for you?
2015 so far has been eventful and this opportunity has opened my eyes to many avenues that are waiting for me.  2014 was my best year yet so it's gonna be hard to top it but I am committed to try! MCUK is gonna help me tick off at least 2 things of my bucket list; walking the Catwalk and meeting some of the people who inspired me to start this journey. In my book that's such an achievement already.

2015; me & you, yeah...we're gonna make our mark on the world!
