I was told I was 'too fat to model' – now I pose for Khloe Kardashian's Good American | The Sun

January 10, 2023

A PLUS-SIZE model is proving her cruel teenage doubters wrong.

Sharon Clawson, 26, is finally making a big name for herself in the modeling world.


It’s quite an achievement for a woman who has had to endure a lifetime of unkind jibes and name-calling about her weight.

Today she struts the catwalk for some of the America's most famous fashion brands and celebrities.

To those who said she would never be a model, Sharon is having the last laugh.

Some of the campaigns she has modeled for include Kim Kardashian’s Skims, Khloé Kardashian’s Good American, H&M and many more.

Sharon’s determination to succeed led her to make one of the most significant decisions of her life in 2019 when she dropped out of college and decided to focus on modeling.

It was a risk worth taking because, within a year, she was signed by BTWN modeling agency.

"I decided to stop hating myself and love the body I am in, not just exist in it," Sharon told Newsweek.

"There’s no point hating something I can’t fully change."

Sharon is body-positive today, but it wasn’t always the case.

At school, her sixth-grade teacher told her she had a “pretty face" before undoing the compliment by telling her not to
“let your body ruin it.”

She tried to achieve a gym-toned body because she thought that was what she had to do.

But she now has a far more positive relationship with her body and has come to love her curves.

Her visits to the gym these days help her feel healthier, more in control, and to enjoy a: “mindset of feeling empowered.”

Sharon’s journey to model status means she is now a far more confident woman and happy to flaunt her body in lingerie and swimwear campaigns.

After hiding her body away for most of her life, this voluptuous model now loves showing her body off.

Sharon's plus-sized modeling career is inspiring others too.
So far, she has 40,000 followers on TikTok and another 38,000 on Instagram.

Sharon is encouraging other young women, who face the same challenges she did, to hold on to their dream.

“Anyone doubting their ambitions, there is space for you in the creative world,” she said.
