The model on the cover of the June 2015 issue of People magazine may have been bullied at one time but she’s enjoying some serious redemption with a successful modeling career. Tess Holliday (aka Tess Munster), supermodel is the creator of the “EFF Your Beauty Standards” movement and building a major curvy brand.
“Tess is a Plus-Size Model, Make Up Artist, Body Positive Activist and Blogger based in L.A., who turned her hobbies into a successful career. She says she is now doing what she always dreamed of.
Tess was born in a small town in Mississippi, July 1985. She always longed for a life bigger than what her small town could offer. She had always been different than other girls growing up; Tess was teased for being curvy, fair skinned, and short. The bullies at school were relentless, but she kept her head up. Knowing that she’d never quite fit in never kept Tess from dreaming.” – excerpt from www.tessmunster.com
