Plus-Size Model & Actress Diana Gaitirira: Signed, Sealed, Delivered to New Endeavors

If you haven't yet, you need to Friend Request Diana "Dia" Gaitirira on ModelWire Network - she is doing things! 

When and why did you start modeling? 
I started modeling 3 years ago as a hobby and found it to be very therapeutic and exciting, so I decided to take it seriously last year. 

What has been your favorite project you have worked on so far? 
Co-producing my first short film called "Not On Board." It was both empowering and a learning experience. Hopefully this is the beginning of several projects. 

Is there a piece of advice you would like to share with everyone? 
The advice I want to share with everyone is never stop dreaming.
I'd like to share a quote from one of my heroes:
"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world." Harriet Tubman
