Tracey Lange interviews her Woman Crush Wednesday #WCW.
This week, Tracey chats to Candice Manuel, a plus-sized model, businesswoman and motivational speaker.
Scroll down for the interview.
Her journey began back in 2016 when she launched a body-positive movement called Embrace Your Curves.
It started as a social media platform for women to kind of just share in and embrace who they are regardless of their shape or size.
Then it turned into a full-time business where I was able to leave a corporate job that I was in for about 15 years.
Embrace Your Curves then went on to win a small business of the year award in 2018 and 2019.
Candice says that she started modelling at the age of 14.
When I turned 18... puberty happens so your body starts changing.
My contract actually got terminated... I lost all confidence completely within the industry that I was interested in.
When I got signed as a plus-sized model, apart from feeling like there was a stigma attached to it, it was liberating to actually be one of the first to stand up and say I can still take on this industry regardless of having some curves...
