SPOTLIGHT: SARAH HAMEL-SMITH
Influencer, The Curvy Trini
Sarah Hamel-Smith is a digital influencer and plus sized model with a deep understanding and passion for the plus sized consumer. After being body shamed for many years she dedicated her life to promoting the size diversity agenda by creating imagery desensitizing people from seeing plus sized women in fashion and utilizing storytelling to empower people of all shapes, abilities, races and gender/ sexual identities to understand their worth. This contextual understanding allows her to assist brands to strategically build a powerful emotional connection with their consumers. She works with brands to evoke positive change in the fashion industry.
Sarah has worked with several major and start-up plus sized fashion brands as plus sized model and influencer including Macys and is regularly featured as a model and writer in BTFL Magazine. She has spoken at NYU as a subject matter expert in influencer marketing and is involved with several organizations dedicated to human empowerment.
