I'd like to introduce you to Ms. Sheka Wilson! This woman exudes confidence. Seriously. She is one of those people that can light up a room just by walking into it.
Sheka is both beautiful inside and out, knows it, and owns it. Here's what she has to say about her ambitions about breaking into the model and performance artist world:
I'm all about self image. I believe every woman is gorgeous in her own right whether its the color of her eyes, the shape of her mouth, to the curves of her body, we all deserve the right to be called Beautiful.
Modeling has put a stigma on curvy women, but yet more and more women are getting boob jobs and butt injections. And to those who are naturally born with it, we are not well received in the industry.
And being a woman of color shines an even brighter light on the industry. I must say, I've seen more African Americans in television commercials, since Obama's taken office, in a very long time. I'm only one woman but I have a voice and I intend to use it! Role models today, look very different since I was a teen.
My "mission" if I have to have one, would be to "Celebrate Self!" Love who you are the way God made you!
