Curvy Girl Spotlight of December: Tarina Rana’e
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I was born in Savannah Georgia and spent one term in the US army. I am a mother of 3 boys who are my life. I’ve always wanted to be a model since as far back as I can remember but although I was small enough for regular modeling, I wasn’t tall enough. My favorite color is pink.
What inspired you to get into modeling?
After giving birth and being diagnosed with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) I struggled with self esteem issues for years. Now I look at modeling as an opportunity to be an inspiration to every day women who may have self esteem issues or feel that because they aren’t a certain size or height they can’t model. If I can do it, so can you!
I have done runway and print.
What are your likes and dislikes about modeling?
I love the transformation process, traveling and meeting wonderful people.I dislike the separation and discrimination of “Plus” and “regular” models.
I am a part of the Virginia Full Figured Fashion Week (Vf3w) team and I work alone.
