Life Quote: “In order to be irreplaceable; one must always be different and stay humble.”
We love shining the light on our Luxe Beauties! This month we had the pleasure of interviewing Maria Sosa!
What are your views or thoughts about the plus size industry?
My views on the plus size industry are extremely positive. I see the industry growing and making a big difference, especially now that I have gotten involved and have met so many empowering and supportive people. Social media has been an important instrument for the verbal as well as the visual aspect of inspiration. Influencers have taken huge steps to support and educate all.
As an industry what do we need to do for woman of color to get the recognition they deserve?
We need to continue supporting one another, promoting the beauty within, not that of only what society seems appealing to fashion. Everyone is beautiful in any, shape, size or color and there fashion for all.
What made you decide to be a kurvy woman in media?
I have always been a curvy female, more so when younger. My parents would always pressure me because of my weight; I was self-conscious of myself for years. I recently lost weight and learned to accept and love who I am. I now have 2 young females following my footsteps, and they mean the world to me. With that being said, I now embrace my Kurves at full speed, because I want to project only up lifting, positive vibes and self-love. Ultimately they should feel confident at all times.
What do you want your legacy to be?
I want everyone to remember the change of confidence in me; to take that as an inspiration to love themselves more each day. My children should remember me as a non-stop working mom that loved every inch of her curvy body and smiled even through the worst times.
6 words the best describe you?
What is your meaning of a “Luxe Beautie?”
Luxe Beautie means you’re ALIVE!!! Vibrant and Beautiful no matter how different you may feel. As I quote my motto “In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different” and Different means Beauty. Fashion is created by diversified visions of what individuals find appealing.
