Elite Modeling, one of the world’s most prestigious agencies, has signed a transgender, disabled, person of color to their agency. Seventeen-year-old Aaron Philip has thanked her supporters who have shown nothing but love after she made the announcement.
“This hasn’t been easy, but we did it! I’m so excited and grateful to work hard and share this new chapter of my life with you all,” she added.
Philip’s agent told the New York Times last year that it’s time for the world to see the beauty that Philip’s possess. “..beauty isn’t just, you know, a 5-foot-10-inch, size-zero model.”
“I don’t want signings like mine to be a trend or a fad. I want careers for black, disabled, and trans models to be attainable and sustainable,” she added.
