Plus size model Ashley Graham says her Christian faith has helped her throughout her modeling career.
Graham is one of the most sought-after models in the fashion industry and although some of her work would be considered over-sexualized she candidly told Harper’s Bazaar UK that her Christian upbringing continues to impact her personal and professional decisions.
“My faith has given me the strength to say ‘no.’ If I’m not comfortable, or if something doesn’t align with my mission, then I’m not participating. My faith is my balance,” the 31 year old Nebraska native said.
The model, who’s been married for nine years, said she and her husband always pray together.
“My husband and I like to pray together because in the Bible it talks about when two or more are gathered, God is in the midst. Whatever your higher power or beliefs, I think it’s important to have that quiet moment of reflection,” she said.
In the interview, Graham also pitched a request to attend Kanye West’s exclusive invite-only Sunday Service.
“And if anyone can get me into Kanye West’s Sunday Service, I’ll be on the plane to LA,” added the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover girl. “I need to go have some worship.”
