Star Alex is a petite model from New York, and she is taking the world by storm. Going against all odds when it comes to lacking height in the modeling industry, Star Alex managed to achieve a near impossible amount of success, all on her own. Star had to organize every brand deal, sponsorship, runway, and magazine shoot by herself. Yet, Star Alex didn’t let height requirements, or lack of representation stop her from making a name for herself.
Just after she first started modeling, Star had already been spotted in New York Magazine, Girl’s Life Magazine, Amazon, Sears, Walmart, and on billboards across New York. However, what’s best about fashion model Star Alex, is that she takes her role as a model very literally. “A model could be defined as an ideal example for someone to be able to follow and replicate.” Star says, and it’s clear from her instagram account, and youtube page, that Star takes this concept very seriously. It is clear that Star tries to inspire, and help every single follower she has accumulated, in one way or another.
“It’s vital to make a difference if you are ever in a position to do so. It takes the smallest amount of effort to speak out things like body positivity, and self love. Even responding to a hate comment in a private DM could prevent that same person from spreading hate on other people’s images right after yours. You could be an inspiration to someone, so why not be someone worth looking up to.”
Star openly speaks about body image struggles, hate comments, and relationships, covering nearly all subjects of the possible struggles her audience could be facing. With more models acting like models should, these small acts can add up to make a huge difference.
Beauty, brains, and kindness. We should all take a page out of Star Alex’s book, and use our success to better the world around us.
