“Sarah loves to dream and Plus size modelling was a part of that dream. Sarah is a professional plus size model, blogger, beauty diversity advocate and public speaker. Her passion is to help women see their true beauty regardless of their weight. Sarah’s personal story of beauty for ashes is at the core of her journey for helping women discover their magnificence and excel from within.
Sarah openly shares her journey of surviving abuse, self-hatred and sadness to thriving in a place of joy and self-love to give other women hope that they too can overcome anything and see beauty in themselves.
On June 30th, she was crowned Miss Plus Canada 2014 in Toronto, Ontario. Sarah was also awarded People’s Choice and the Talent Award where she shared her journey from abuse, self-hatred and sadness to a place of joy and self-love.
The couple of years have been full of exciting events, modelling, appearances, speaking engagements and encouraging others to love themselves, just the way they are. She has also ripped the runway in several local and international shows including Full Figured Fashion Week, Montreal Plus Fashion week, and Caribbean Plus Fashion Week.
Giving back is important for Sarah because in her darkest hour, the love and support from those around her helped her to see her true worth and push her forward.
Sarah lives in Toronto, Ontario and currently works in the non profit sector at Frontstream – a software company that works with non profits who fundraise online. Sarah is passionate about working with some of North America’s top charities as they develop their online strategy and implementation plans to grow their fundraising efforts.
She also volunteers at WINGS Maternity Home in Ajax as the Executive Assistant, Event & Fundraising Manger and as a mentor to the young moms who live in the home as well as the 50 community moms WINGS supports. WINGS is a very big part of Sarah’s life and considers it her second home. Be sure to check out the W.I.N.G.S. Maternity Home Website for more information about what they do (www.wingsmaternityhome.com). Please consider making a donation to this amazing cause!
Although Sarah models fashion, her heart’s desire is to be a woman clothed with strength and dignity and laugh at the future with no fear – no fear of what if’s and what next.”
