My name is Janira Hernandez and I am a girl from the “Big City” with “Big City” dreams! I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois where I aspire to make my mark on the plus size modeling industry. For the last two years I have come to understand that Glam means rocking what you were born with and loving every minute of it. Being “Glamorsized” means that no one else in this entire universe has my curves, my face, or my personality. When it’s time to get up in the morning and get dressed I make sure to not look in the mirror and say “I wish my hips were different” or “I wish I had a smaller belly.” Instead, I look in the mirror and say “this is the body God blessed me with and I am going to rock it and be glamorous at the same time!”
Currently, I am a Tour Coordinator for a marketing firm and I travel across the Southeastern U.S. I have a passion for broadcasting and have had the opportunity to showcase my radio personality previously in Chicago as an on air host for a Dance radio station. Ultimately, being an on air personality and plus model are my career goals. I want to be able to give back to my community by starting a nonprofit organization that will help empower teen girls to be positive role models. My plans are to launch the organization in Chicago, and then spread around the globe.
