"I had no idea what plus size was," she says. "I was tall and broad. I mean, I was bigger but I thought I was slim. When I went to the agencies and one proposed plus modeling, I wasn't offended, but I was like, what do you mean? He showed me these fabulous girls he was representing and I was like, oh, I'm down for that!" But her career could have taken a very different route if she hadn't had such uncanny foresight and fortitude as a teenager."One agency said, 'If you lose 15 pounds we'll sign you,'" Huffine recalls. "I thought if I'm not small enough now and I'm young and active and I'm not a size 4 … no thank you. It's crazy how there are these moments, a fork in the road and it dictates the rest of your life. This was a moment." She continues, "I don't mean to sound Pollyanna about it, but my body is meant to be the size that it is. I eat healthy and I work out, and my weight doesn't move. This is where I'm meant to be."

Why I do this job? I connect with women who are not confident with their body. And I tell them they can be the person they want. They can succeed, fall in love, eat pasta and enjoy life, no matter the size. They may be a larger size, but their weight should not be the centre of their life.
