A stunning teenager, who measures up at 67 in heels, has defied the bullies who called her a monster to become a model. Aeva Andersson, 19, spent the entirety of her teenage years being bullied for her height as she came in as the tallest person at her school. After aspiring to be a model ever since she can remember, Aevas confidence continued to fall when she was told that she was plus-sized due to being 6ft tall and a size 10, aged 13. But despite regularly being called a monster and scaring men away, Aeva didnt let her dream slip away. Now, Aeva has signed to Models of Diversity and is revelling in her height by regularly taking part in photoshoots and catwalks.

SAD NOSI REVIJE

Uspjela je unatoč kritikama: 'Zvali su me čudovištem, a dečki su me se bojali'

Na Tjednu mode u Londonu jedna od najzanimljivijih manekenki bila je 19-godišnja Irkinja koju su zbog njezine visine cijelog života maltretirali, a njezine snove o manekenskoj karijeri rušili izjavama kako je jednostavno previsoka.

190 centimetara visine nije je spriječilo da ostvari svoje snove. Manekenka Aeva Andersson (19) oduvijek se isticala među vršnjacima jer je još kao djevojčica bila natprosječno visoka. U svojoj je školi bila uvijek najviša zbog čega su je zadirkivali, a kada bi za noćni izlazak odabrala štikle – i dosegla visinu od dva metra – često su je čudno gledali i nazivali pogrdnim riječima.

- Uvijek sam bila nevjerojatno visoka, izgledam poput žirafe na svim školskim fotografijama, a neki su mi dali i nadimak čudovište, dok mi dečki uopće nisu prilazili jer su me se bojali – otkrila je irska manekenka.

Kada je imala samo 13 godina rečeno joj je da nema predispozicije da bude model te da eventualno može proći pod kategoriju plus size. Ipak, takve riječi nisu je obeshrabrile i prošle ju je godine pod svoje okrilje uzela agencija Models of Diversity. Danas surađuje s poznatim brendovima i nosi revije, a prije nekoliko dana nosila je kolekciju dizajnera Malana Bretona na Tjednu mode u Londonu.

Iako joj je visina nekada bila bolna točka, sada zna da je upravo zbog toga što je drugačija od drugih danas poželjna na modnim pistama.

- Strpljenje je najveća vrlina i drago mi je što nikada nisam odustala od svojih snova. I dalje izlazim u štiklama, ali sada me više nije briga plašim li nekog ili ne. Nema ništa strašno u mojoj visini. A i napokon sam sretno zaljubljena pa se ne osvrćem na muškarce koje plaši mojih 190 centimetara - poručila je 19-godišnjakinja koja se trudi sve te godine maltretiranja ostaviti iza sebe i posvetiti se manekenstvu.
