My name is Maria Quitar, but I go by Mia Kelly for privacy purposes. I am 22 years old; I live in Columbus, Ohio with my family. I am an aspiring model looking to make a difference in the world through my pictures. What I want to achieve in life is to put to rest all the body shaming standards, and prove you can be any size and still be beautiful. I dream to travel to different states to take beautiful photos with all different types of photographers.
Ever since I was a kid, I always dreamed about making a difference in the world. It all started when I was tired of the way other people would shame me for the way I looked and the size I was. So, one day I woke up and decided it was time for a change. I started to love myself and realise my beauty and confidence is all I needed to succeed in life. My dream is to express this to the world through photography, taking a stand to body shaming standards. Proving it doesn't matter what size you are as long as you're beautiful on the inside you are beautiful on the outside.
