Who am I?

I am a Fashion Hero. My definition of a hero of fashion is a God-fearing person that is the Life of any Party, who gracefully lives out loud through clothes, shoes, accessories, and personality. Describing myself through aspirations, I would say that I am a Chicago native who resides in Dallas who has traveled the world, raised her children, and secured her finances for 47 years; and is now ready to Airbnb her home, walk away from the insurance industry, and travel wherever she needs to be to pursue her dreams as a full-time actress/plus-sized lifestyle model/brand ambassador.

What do I think about A New Kind of Beautiful TV series Presented by The Fashion Hero TV series?

The Fashion Hero TV series’ creators, staff, and contestants are all innovators! Who does what you all do? (don’t worry I’ll wait) This is thee first platform that creates a space for people of all tones, shapes, fashion senses, and genders to find empowerment in people WHO LOOK LIKE THEM and reaffirms the real truth of beauty, which is…. that there truly is no standard to beauty, it’s in the eye of the beholder!!! I’ve watched every clip and episode of the Fashion Hero that I could find. I am preparing myself mentally and emotionally to face any limiting beliefs about myself or unknown factors that the challenges on the show might expose. I’m willing to endure that because more than anything I want to be comfortable with being an example to other people of what it means to live in your truth!!! This is my opportunity to change the norm and prove that it's possible to gain the love, support, and respect of the world by simply showcasing my uniqueness as a New Kind Of Beautiful.

Why would I be a great role model for this generation and inspire people as the new face of A New Kind Of Beautiful TV series Presented by The Fashion Hero?

I believe that I would be a great role model for this generation and inspire people as the new face of the Fashion Hero because my name is Joy aka Watajoy and I embody every meaning of the word. I am often told by friends and strangers alike that they love my energy. I am very welcoming, understanding, non-judgmental, supportive and very honest. Outside of that, I pride myself on being a walking billboard for fashion. My style is comfy, bold and vibrant. My body positive mindset motivates those who know me, as I'm often told. Imagine me being the face of The Fashion Hero, reaching millions, setting the standard for what it truly means to be free, to live according to your own rules, to be unapologetically fierce and fabulous. Shine on!!!
