FORMER FINALIST OF MISS EUROPEAN 2011 JASMINE EL KTIBI BECOMES ASPIRING PLUS SIZE MODEL

Say hello to the former finalist of Miss European 2011, Jasmine El Ktibi. She is an exquisite Dutch Moroccan woman living in the Netherlands, aspiring to be a plus size model who will rock your world with her beautiful angular visage and dazzling story being her. At the age of 16 she discovered that she likes the idea of modelling and started taking selfies of herself on a camera her dad kept on top of his wardrobe. Eventually she opened up a Facebook account and started to upload photos of herself; it was through there she was discovered and asked to do what would be her very first photoshoot in Utrecht, a city in the Netherlands. After the shoot, all kinds of people recognised her unique and photogenic quality; edging her on towards becoming a professional model if she really goes for it — but there was just one problem, she wasn’t thin enough.

Jasmine developed her curves from an early age however, in the modelling business she was considered too fat, and started to develop insecurities which lead to her undergoing dieting. This didn’t help much as it was never good enough, although she got asked to participate in the Miss European 2011 Pageant in England, UK, where she stayed in a penthouse for one week with 89 other girls from the whole of Europe. After seeing how harsh the pageant was, she developed anorexia nervosa, starving herself and spending vast amounts of time in the gym to keep her weight as low as possible. She developed an unhealthy lifestyle taking fat burning pills, stacker diet pills; becoming exceedingly obsessed with her weight.

This led her to become the finalist of the Miss European 2011 Pageant contest, yet she could no longer look at herself in the mirror due to the build-up of guilt she possessed for being curvy. Despite going through all this difficulty to become extremely thin, she didn’t feel happy about herself even though she reached the so called “Beauty ideal,” and became quite depressed realising that she needed to do something about it. She knew that it starts with the mind, that self-love is important because it is inconvenient to cause damage to your health trying to fit in; she began to get her figure back, regained focussed, and now wants to make a difference on this planet.

To this very day, Jasmine is one of the finest aspiring plus size models who is currently signed to Models Thrive Management, and is managed by Justin J. White who runs the management company. Jasmine states, “I am curvy, I have a big butt and I’m proud of it! I want to give a message to all young girls and women who are struggling with self-love and self-acceptance: Just be proud about who you are because you are good the way you are! Be your own body goals.” Jasmine is remarkable and her features stand out amongst many, her hips do not lie, and her eyes can leave you mesmerised if you stare in them long enough to see what such an enchantress she is, but that’s not all, she has so much to offer being in the right hands and can contribute significantly to the plus size industry.

Justin continues to motivate and direct her in the right direction regarding elegance, resilience, and good work etiquette to protrude. Despite her downfalls she continues to strive to be the best in what she does, and there is no holding her back when she is in her zone and committed.

Glamour in the dark

What is in the darkness can still be elegant, beautiful; the light that shines in the dark is always seen by someone else even if you cannot see it for yourself. You may feel in complete utter darkness; your heart may feel as if it’s being pinched by a thousand needles when you feel like the black cloud is hovering over you. But that’s not what we all see, that’s not what every outsider sees in the darkness.7

Your light shines bright like a lighthouse seen from miles away offshore. If we can see it from the outside, then you can see it from the inside. You just need to look deep enough, not just from your reflection but by quieting your mind to listen to your inner voice. That’s called intuition, your guide that lets you know who you are and how loved you are even if you cannot see it.

Sometimes you’ll feel like you’ve been down for a lifetime, but there are those around you in the dark to also keep you in check. And people still love you in the shadows of depths, even if it’s not evident in the physical, someplace, somewhere, someone does. So in the darkness always reflect because outsiders see a different picture. There is always space to breathe even when the water is up to your neck, for you won’t drown in the deep end but learn to thrive from when you’re deep in the dark.

  • You may see your darkness as evil, on the flipside we see bright light.
  • Your heart may feel painful and hollow, but we see love and depth.
  • Your life may feel rotten, but we feel hope and faith.
  • Your head may hurt from the critical negativity about yourself, but we think positivity.
  • Your ears may hear hostility, but we hear unity.
  • Your mouth may say no, but we say hunger kills you slowly.
  • Your stomach may feel full in the reality of emptiness, but we say to enjoy your meal.
  • Your world may seem despondent, but we recall exultant.

Darkness is just the absence of light. What shall be within your heart is only a point of view, so if you feel darkness inside; an empty feeling of love, just know we are here to love you just like we love everybody else.
