And thank you @rozen.nl for delivering the most beautiful and best quality roses for our shoot.

Model: @vicky.geno -
"As a refugee from South Sudan I felt the urge to set high goals for myself. I had to learn hard from the choices I made and the concequences it came with. But I have learnt the most from the way people see and think about me. Whatever they think or may have thought, I will always prove that I will be a better version of me than I was yesterday." -

Iskammella Risiomara

Model: @iskamellawennekes - "There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty." -

 

Deborah Carvalho Moreno

Model: @deborahmoreno1 - "The reason I started modelling is to inspire women like me around the world. I want them to know that it is okay to be yourself. We do not need to have the "perfect body" as long as we embrace and love ourselves." -

 

Latifah Womahoro 

Model: @queenla.tifa - "My advice to young adults is to be yourself. Keep dreaming my brothers & sisters. Do not ever give up and you will achieve your goals in life." -

 

Saskia Oever

Model: @saskia_oever - "I got rejected three times at my first agency before they wanted me! Now I am in at least fifteen agencies and also get bookings on social media. If you want something never give up!" -

 

Nabintou Djabi

Model: @nabintou_djabi (founder of Unblanoir) - "I created @unblanoir because there needs to be more diversity in the modelling world and the fashion industry. A few brands are starting to add a little bit of diversity. It is a great start, but it is not enough. Sizes do not have to matter as much as they do now. Do not get me wrong, not everyone can just be a model like that. It requires strength, potention and talent. But let us try and take a look at people differently. Let us not make the size of your waist and bust more important than your talent. Everyone is beautiful and unique, so why focus on what we already know? I will not stop until there is more diversity in the modelling world. Diversity is reality. Help us make a change by supporting @unblanoir." -
