Tess Holliday dropped out of high school because of the intense bullying she endured, but she wouldn’t allow her haters to stop her from pursuing her modeling career. In 2013, she founded the wildly successful #EffYourBeautyStandards social media campaign, and in 2015, she became the first size 22 model to sign with a major modeling agency. “There are so many messages in the media that say it’s all about being slender, about having your hair a certain way, or wearing your makeup a certain way,” Holliday told Today. “We’re just tired of being silenced. We want change from the media and society in general.” Like Tess, other models such as Winnie Harlow and Madeline Stuart fought adversity to redefine the standard of beauty.
