Tara Jade Bent Interview Repost
Mello w: Please tell us a little about yourself..
Tara Jade Bent: My name is Tara Jade Bent, I’m 19 years old. I was crowned 2nd Princess at the Miss Plus Size Universe pageant on Saturday. I’m passionate about modelling and kids. I do plan on going to school next year and I love reading and music and playing hockey and occasionally working out
Mello w: Congrats…
Tara Jade Bent: Thank you
Mello w: Kids..! What do you love about Kids?
Tara Jade Bent: I’ve always been a kid lover… I’m a Sunday school teacher at church… It’s my dream to adopt at least one child when I’m older, because I believe every child deserves an opportunity to be loved and cared for and feel like they matter
Tara Jade Bent: What I love about them their innocence, their laughs can light up a room and their hugs give me life, also their naughty and it keeps you on your toes
Mello w: Tell us more about your modeling. What inspired you to get into modeling?
Tara Jade Bent: I sound a little conceited 😅 but I’ve been told I’m pretty so I thought why not… I modelled in nursery school and won.. I entered my church pageant and won that too… But I stopped because I’ve always been big and figured I stop there. I went through a short period of depression and was not comfortable in my own skin… High school was hard for me. Not because I was made fun of or anything but I myself was hard on me. I realized that I’m still gorgeous and no one really cared of my weight then a few months back I met Mr Nilton from iconic models management and I became an agency model then I found out about miss plus size and I’ve been in love since
Tara Jade Bent: The crown makes it easier too😂
Mello w: You are Pretty..
Tara Jade Bent: Thank you so very much
Mello w: You are welcome.. did modelling sort of help you fight depression?
Tara Jade Bent: To an extent yes it did
Mello w: Did you face any challenges in your modelling career.. ?
Tara Jade Bent: It just started, but yes people out there are mean and it makes me sad that they feel better about themselves by bringing down others… For instance at the pageant it was live on Facebook and people had nothing nice to say but I felt good so they didn’t bother me
Mello w: I know how it feels when people don’t appreciate what you do.. It’s worse when they say mean things..
Tara Jade Bent: That’s it exactly
Mello w: I am glad that you have already scooped a crown so early..
Tara Jade Bent: Beginners luck
Mello w: Come on, don’t be humble.. how did you feel?
Tara Jade Bent: Honestly I had worked so hard being one of the smaller Girls so when I was called it was so surreal but I feel like I deserved it
Mello w: You deserved it dear… now that you have it, what’s next?
Tara Jade Bent: I want to start and try help and many young ladies as I can who aren’t comfortable with their size… I want to encourage as many ladies as I can while I can I mean you don’t need anyone be it male or female to tell you you’re pretty enough or sexy enough if you dress right and you feel good about yourself… I want to show people that you don’t have to have a small waist to be deemed beautiful. We have Zambia next and I plan to dominate for Zimbabwe
Mello w: Wooow.. those are good plans.. I am sure a many women need that kind of encouragement.. We will support you in all the ways we can..
Mello w: Who is your inspiration?
Tara Jade Bent: Thank you so much
Tara Jade Bent: My mom
It sounds corny but it’s my mom
Mello w: I am happy for you.. many things happen during the teen years and we lose that relationship with our mums but you have kept it alive..
Tara Jade Bent: Yeah my mom and I are very close
Mello w: What message do you have for women and girls out there?
Tara Jade Bent: The world will never be nice to you and it’s okay but it’s fine you’re not here to please anyone as long as you’re happy and the best version of you no one can make you feel like you aren’t worth it
