Shayonce, what does it mean to you to be a plus size model?
Shayonce Love: What it means for me of being a plus size model? Is being fearlessly confident in my body and clothing being an inspiration for other Plus Size beautiful women, and always showing the newest and latest fashions and how I style them.
What is your motivation for being a model?
Shayonce Love: My motivation for being a Plus Size motto is having someone to look up to say S OK to be Plus Size and still be beautiful it’s OK to rock that two-piece or the address that you love. I know quite a few years ago when I would look for Plus Size clothing it was so hard because I didn’t have many people that had my body size and shape that I could look up to so it was very important for me to be that for a lot of women or people.
Was it hard to fit into the industry’s idea of how a model should look?
Shayonce Love: Yes it was hard for me to break into the industry because of my own fears of how people would judge me or the bad things that they would say about me, however, I had to get over that fear so I can be an inspiration for others.

If you could change one fashion rule, what would it be and why?
Shayonce Love: Who follows the rules? Rules are meant to be broken. My number one rule is simply to be yourself where you feel comfortable and confident and just make sure it’s cute.
What are your thoughts on body positivity?
Shayonce Love: In a world full of ugly and cruel people body positivity is so important because growing up on the heavier side you didn’t have a lot of body positivity. Just a lot of people tearing you down and telling you what you’re not supposed to do and not supposed to wear. So it is very crucial in today’s world that we have Plus Size women to look up to and say it’s OK to be Plus Size and beautiful wear that dress wear that two-piece and slay honey.

How would you define the word “confidence”?
Shayonce Love: I would say confidence is knowing that you are beautiful knowing that you are that girl no matter how many people try to tell you you’re not no matter if you do not get a compliment on your outfit your hair your make up confident in knowing that you slay.

Shayonce Love: Just go after your Dreams babe it’s never going to be the right time just go for it and don’t let anyone stop you or stand in your way it may be hard and may take longer than some people but keep pushing even on the days you want to quit push a little harder.
