Last week I was catwalking in London, this week I’m visiting the Modelle e Rotelle event in Rome.
I can’t Believe how hectic it has been for me the last couple of weeks and months.
I’ve been traveling so much and spend more time in a plane than on my own sofa, but I feel very blessed to travel as much as I do and meet the most amazing inspiring people..

The event I’m visiting this weekend in Rome is Modelle E Rotelle a yearly Italian fashionshow featuring 25 disabled models all in a Wheelchair and 25 straightsize catwalk models.
What I Love about this show is that they intergrated the disabled models onto a catwalk with straightsize mainstream models. This is how it should be!

Today I’m going to the press event with the Italian Models of Diversity director Alessandro Capocetti trying to get some of the MoD Abled Models like Shaholly Ayers and Faye Povey into next years show!

Also I’m gonna meet with Tamara Mena from the US she has been in contact with me and Models of Diversity for a while now she is hosting the events this year and one of the models.
