If you haven't already heard of gorge Irish model Tia Duffy then you can be sure you'll be seeing a lot of her this year.

The Dublin gal, who currently lives in Canada, recently created a positive body awareness campaign that has made it onto the pages of Vogue Italia - fairly insane for any model.

Her Be Body Aware campaign began after Tia faced difficulty about her body and size as a model, with some casting directors saying she was too small and others saying she was too big.

I can't really find the words to say when a project I've poured my life into is published on Vogue Magazine with my exclusive most personal interview to date . The only thing I can say is never give up on your dreams and beliefs. From a teenager I could only of dreamed of being in Vogue Magazine but to have an exclusive interview about a project I've directed and founded from scratch was just nothing I would have imagined. Dreams really do come true. Thank you Vogue Italia for coming on board the Be Body Aware Project really looking forward to future endeavours with you ????. Happy to be bringing Canadian fashion the light it deserves ????????????????????????????????oh and Irish ???? fashion ????#vogue #voguemagazine #listenupteens #thewindofchange #ishere #blessed???? #diversity #imagery #runway #research #bebodyaware LINK IN BIO
