Una revista rechazó a esta modelo por no ser “suficientemente delgada”. Su respuesta es inspiradora

Nina Agdal tiene 25 años y escribió una carta abierta hacia una revista de moda, quienes rechazaron lanzar la revista con una portada de ella en bikini porque “no se reflejaba bien su talento y no encajaba bien en su mercado,” reporta Mirror. La modelo danesa dice que se niega tajantemente a pedir perdón por sus curvas y por no ser como un palo de delgada.

“Si alguien se interesa en mi, saben que no tengo el típico cuerpo de modelo- mi cuerpo es el de una atleta con curvas de una persona saludable,” dijo. Nina ha modelado antes para Vogue, Maxim y Sport Illustrated.

Today, I’m disappointed and appalled at the still very harsh reality of this industry. A few months ago, I agreed to shoot with a creative team I believed in and was excited to collaborate with. When my agent received an unapologetic email concluding they would not run my cover/story because it “did not reflect well on my talent” and “did not fit their market,” the publisher claimed my look deviated from my portfolio and that I did not fit into the (sample size) samples, which is completely false. If anyone has any interest in me, they know I am not an average model body – I have an athletic build and healthy curves. After a tough year of taking a step back from the insensitive and unrealistic pressures of this industry and dealing with paralyzing social anxiety, I walked into that shoot as a 25 year old WOMAN feeling more comfortable in my own skin and healthier than ever before. Some days I’m a sample size, some days I’m a size 4, some a 6. I am not built as a runway model and have never been stick thin. Now more than ever, I embrace my curves and work diligently in the gym to stay strong and most of all, sane. I am proud to say that my body has evolved from when I started this crazy ride as a 16 year old GIRL with unhealthy and insufficient eating habits. So, shame on you and thank you to the publisher for reaffirming how important it is to live your truth and say it out loud, no matter who you are or what size. I decided to release an image to draw awareness and support of an issue that's bigger than just myself and affects so many people not just in the fashion industry, but in general, with the goal of bringing women from all over together in a celebration of our bodies. Let's find ways to build each other up instead of constantly finding ways to tear each other down. #bodyshaming #bodyimage #selfimage #dietculture #mybodymybusiness

“Tras un difícil año lejos del modelaje y las presiones poco realistas e insensibles de la industria y lidiar con ansiedad social, entré a mi primera sesión de foto como una MUJER sintiéndome bien en mi propio más cuerpo y más sana que nunca. Algunos días son talla 4 y otros 6″.

“Estoy orgullosa de que mi cuerpo haya evolucionado desde que comencé esta loca aventura a los 16 años como una NIÑA con malos hábitos alimenticios. Encontremos maneras de apoyarnos en vez de siempre criticarnos“.

Nina recibió cientos de mensajes de apoyo, y compartió un video para sus 1.7 millones de seguidores agradeciéndoles por todo.

Ya es hora de que terminemos con estos ridículos estereotipos y falsas aspiraciones hacia nuestros cuerpos.
