PLUS MODEL MAGAZINE October 2015, Love Your Body Issue - Page 141

Celebrities: Melissa McCarthy / Gabourey Sidibe - These talented actresses have a confidence about them that just captivates me every time I see them on the big screen. They are so talented that I find myself forgetting that they are plus size. I had a chance to meet Melissa McCarthy on-set while modeling for her new fashion line. She is so humble, down-to-earth and just as funny as she is on TV. Where do you see yourself in the next year? In the next year I see myself venturing more into the international market of fashion outside the US. I have some commercials under my belt, but acting is another avenue I see myself going into. Though modeling is my new love, my long-standing passion is community outreach with a focus on the youth and social economic development. Establishing a nonprofit is on the top of my to do list Agency: MC2CURVE/@mc2curve Facebook: Hope Kiriisa Instagram: @HopeKiriisa www.HopeKiriisa.Com
