26 year-old plus-size model Iskra Lawrence rocked a pair of denim shorts as she recorded a segment for her EveryBODY program on Venice Beach in Los Angeles yesterday afternoon.

On how she doesn’t diet:

I haven’t dieted for years, maybe like seven years now.

On her body image philosophy:

I want to show that every person deserves to feel beautiful and love themselves no matter what other people say or what they see in the media. Instagram has changed my life both personally and professionally. It is has given me a platform to help young women and men who struggle with body-image and self-esteem, which were issues that I dealt with growing up.

On wishing she was still a teenager:

‘I’ve grown up too quickly. I feel like I’ve rushed into becoming a woman, so now I just want to be a teenager again.’

On wanting to become an actress:

‘I’d love to start acting and have more of a voice in the world. I need to start taking acting classes and figure out a way to memorize things better because I have a really bad brain. But yes, the Oscar – one day.’

On working hard:

‘I’m not saying I don’t love my job, but people think modeling is just a bulls*** thing to become more famous. I was 100 percent independent by the time I was 18, and I paid for my own apartment. That wasn’t because of my parents. I worked my a** off for two years.’
