SC: What is your ultimate goal as a model?
Al Ly: Influencing young women for the better, showing them there is more than 1 “type of beauty”, for plus models to be seen equal to sample size models. Most people are not sample size, I want plus models to be booking shows along side sample size models. I want people to feel comfortable and happy in their natural self, that your life matters and to be healthy. I also feel like the term body positivity gets thrown around too often and can be misconstrued. I don’t think it’s good when people are using “body positivity” to justify their unhealthy behaviour to their body. For me, I know I am big, but I’m also working our 4 or 5 days a week, eating a balanced diet and working. I see people using this term on themselves or other people who are not living a healthy lifestyle, I can’t condone that and don’t agree with it.
