Euphoria’s Barbie Ferreira was a chubby kid and had body image issues like many other children like her. She was demoralized to find not a single model or actress of her size on magazines or TV shows. However, she often made Tumblr videos and pretended to be a model. Probably her introvert nature forced her to do this. One day she took some pictures of herself and sent them to American Apparel. Although this was done impulsively, the high-school girl got the opportunity to work with the brand. This boosted her confidence. An unedited picture of Barbie featuring American Apparel’s lingerie line, Aerie became viral in 2015.
She went on to become a plus-size model. She is also an advocate of body positivity. Barbie Ferreira also featured in an edition of Seventeen magazine taking a stand against fat-shaming. She also hosted a Vice video series named How to Behave focused on self-care. The project later won the Webby Award.
