Who: Diana Veras is a fly 19-year-old Dominican girl from NYC who is quickly becoming a face for body positivity. She’s signed to IMG models and has already worked with American Apparel, Opening Ceremony, the #mycalvins campaign and loads more to come.

Why You Should Follow: For cute looks and body pos inspiration. Diana encourages women to embrace their own look and unique beauty, as she explained in a recent feature in Oyster Mag : “I meet beautiful, thick, plus size girls all the time who are like, ‘I wanna get into modelling’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah girl, we can do it!’ Everyone has a look and everybody is beautiful, and there’s a model for everything.”
If those aren’t reasons enough, her amazing hair, rad style and love for empanadas make her a very strong candidate for your next #WCW.
