PHAT Girl Friday Featuring Zyoness


 “Let your curves define you, but not limit you.”

This quote is a true testament to the beliefs and driving forces of curvy model; Zyoness. She is a woman who has a presence that is only matched by her beautiful spirit.  Zyoness is not only a woman determined to win but her heart’s desire is to use her platform to inspire other women to do the same.


Zyoness is a American Trinidadian model from Brooklyn, New York. She has always been in front of the camera starting at age of 9 when she entered her first modeling competition.  Although Zyoness is strong and bold, being plus size was always been an issue for her growing up. These growing pains are what motivated Zyoness embrace her curves and be fashionable, daring and different.

In 2011, the 5’9 model decided to join the ranks of Natalie Laughlin, Tara Lynn, Candice Huffin and Lauren Veluvolu, just to name a few. She begins to work hard and gradually make a name for herself as a model.  While she has great love for the industry, Zyoness is most proud of the opportunity to empower other women to embrace their body and love themselves.  She is not just a model. Zyoness embodies the meaning of Zyoness, stemming from the word Zion, which is to empower oneself and others.1013327_10203354201645750_1693128437_n
