We had the wonderful pleasure of chatting with Rachel Peru, a 50 year-old curve model embracing her natural silver hair and curvy figure, an activist for body confidence, and a podcaster.
Rachel told us about her experiences in the modeling industry and what ageism looks like for her. She also elaborated on her career change in her forties, the beginnings of her "Out of the Bubble" podcast, and the BeReal Campaign.
"There is huge change happening, and I think that intergenerational conversations are the most important that are going to make the shift. I think language and talking and having these open conversations is the way forward." - Rachel Peru
Thank you, Rachel, for inspiring us with your story!
