Jessica Rodriguez is a model that is overweight and is from Costa Rica.
She aspires to win Miss Universe because the competition’s criteria have changed to allow women of all appearances to compete, regardless of their marital status or if they are expecting a child.
Additionally, the plus-size model aims to overcome conventional notions of beauty by winning the contest.
She then started to campaign against fatphobia, or the prejudice towards those who are overweight or obese.
She accepted the principles of the body positivity movement, which gained popularity in the 1970s when odd models started to emerge in publications.
This exercise assesses all body kinds and instills in us a sense of self-proudness. And this idea has been spread over time until the present.
Jessica thinks that even if her physique is different from thin women’s, models like her should be viewed as beautiful since they are normal in every way.
Jessica declares, “I am a strong woman with strong arms and legs.
The obese model wants to take part in the Miss Costa Rica pageant to demonstrate that beauty is independent of shape or size.
