Curvy Girl Spotlight of January – Ashley Terry
Measurements: 47 – 42 – 52
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am from Portsmouth, VA. I moved to Raleigh, NC to go to Shaw University. That is where I began modeling. In 2006 I joined a plus size modeling troupe called Pure Elegance. I have a BS in Business Management and one in Accounting. I am still living in Raleigh and building my print portfolio. My goal is to do runway full-time.
What inspired you to get into modeling?
I have always been into fashion and when I stepped on a runway I fell in love!
I have done runway and print.
What are your likes and dislikes about modeling?
Again, I LOVE runway and how being on the stage empowers me.
I do not like worrying if people will like my work.
Versatile, Frugal, 40’s
I love shopping and I cannot pass up a good deal whether it’s a sale, thrift buy, or free.
What does Curvy and Curious mean to you?
It means to be shapely and open. We should not hide from the world just because we have a more meat on our bones.
If it’s your dream, go for it at 100%. I think you need full dedication to reach your full potential.
