December 2014 has Chocolate-Covered UGANDAN-CANADIAN PLUS Model/Activist/TV Host SUNDAY OMONY covering the GIFT GUIDE 2014 issue of DAILY VENUS DIVA!!!
Here are some interview highlights:
Sunday Omony: I started modeling when I was 16 years old. I was a size 4 straight-sized model doing mostly commercial editorial then runway. At the time, I felt great pressure to
lose weightin order to maintain my thin frame. I was trying to achieve an unrealistic body that was unattainable for me.
Sunday Omony: In 2004, I was introduced to the plus-size modeling division. I learned that I did not have to change myself to succeed in the modeling industry. I started to love my body and feel comfortable with my natural size. I feel that the plus size division is right for me because I know I’ll never be a size 4 again nor do I desire to be anymore.
Sunday Omony: My first paid modeling assignment was for a book called All Kids Have Dreams by Aspen. I was hired to model as a deviant youth. It was a fun and inspiring experience. The editor also gave me the opportunity to write in the book. What I learned working on this assignment was that everyone’s stories matter and sharing our experiences is vital.
Sunday Omony: In 2012, ShawTV gave me the opportunity to have my own talk-show on their network. I chose to challenge myself and learn a new skill. I am honored for the gift to share empowering and inspirational stories. I work with an amazing team of people who push me and teach me lots every time I am in the studio.
-CCGSunday Omony: My mission as a model is to
continuepushing the boundaries of fashion and showcasing the beauty of diversity. As a talk-show host my goal is to give a voice to young people and share uplifting stories. I am a woman who believes that women should support each other, complement one another and celebrate our accomplishments together.
