Vivian is not only a model, but a student living in London. She explains in an Insider video that she was with her mother when she suggested that Vivian get into acting and modelig. “She was like yeah just do it,” Vivian explains. She says she then submitted to a competioin on StarNow that eventually led to a contract with Bridge Models.
After that, Vivian says, she received an email that she had a casting for ASOS. Though she was nervous, she “did when I usually do, just stand there, do my best, take my pictures, and be as confident as I can which I think I did well, ’cause I got it in the end.”
Vivian says, “The recognition and feedback and the comments and everything by literally every single person I bump into or across social media, it’s been amazing. I don’t think I have any kinda words to kinda describe the feeling, but it’s an amazing feeling that I feel inside, honest. It’s also amazing because I see a lot of people that look like me, a lot of people of color, people that are plus size, just like I am, you know say I’ve seen someone that represents me, finally, things like that, it’s really encouraging to see.”
