It’s time to meet KINA! Kina works in E-Commerce and she’s an amazing stylist! I started following Kina before I ever met her in real life. Then, I met her in real life and was blown away by her amazing style and bubbly personality. I don’t think she meets a stranger. In addition, Kina stepped in when one of my other models had to step out. Some would say that Kina isn’t considered ‘plus-size’ but if you know anything about the fashion industry, anyone over a size EIGHT is considered plus.

What do you do, why do you do it?
I have a full time 8-5 job but that isn’t my passion. I do Instagram and social media because I have found these are meaningful ways to interact with people. It is also a space where less represented body types and less represented people, like people of color of disabled people, finally have a space to be themselves and get messages of support from followers and friends. I love having an online space and community to uplift people who are traditionally left out of a lot of spaces.
What made you embrace your curves?
When did you say, “I’m ok with me?” Honestly, joining Instagram was the biggest step in overcoming my body hate and turning it into body love. I found a huge community of women who were plus size and curvy. It was the first time I had ever seen women who looked like me, and they looked beautiful. I was able to shift my perception of myself and curvier and larger bodies by seeing these women, and seeing them apologetically love themselves authentically.
