2024 Cover Model 

Shajuan Thomas


ShaJuan Thomas, is a full-figured model from Virginia with experience in Commercial, Print, Runway, Acting, and Model/Event Coordination. I have background in Financial Advisory as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology. 


I have dreamed of being a model and actress since adolescence, but I was often discouraged because I wasn’t standard model size. As a teenager I attended Barbizon School of Modeling and Acting, and participated in pageants. In 2015, my mother passed away from breast cancer. As a result, I stepped aside from my modeling dreams. My grandmother passed away from Cancer in 2021, making me realize that life is too short to not pursue my dream. 


After being offered a chance to model in a local fashion show in December 2021, I was encouraged to pursue modeling again. I’ve been pushing forward ever since. My goal is to inspire people all over the world by showcasing that no matter your size, age, gender, or hardships, you can still fulfill your dreams.
