My name is Ottavia Lepera and I am a 19 years old born and raised in a small town in Canada, Ontario. I love singing since a young age, It was my big dream until I met the plus modelling world. I love all music but I prefer R&B. I am a Marilyn Monroe lover!
It started for me when a a Photographer named Dana Brushy contacted me on Facebook. It was my second time in front of a camera. After that shoot she insisted I send the photos she had taken for me to different Plus agencies and I could not believe the response I had gotten! Just a couple weeks after that shoot I was signed. I am now signed with Heffner Managements Plus Division in Seattle and newly signed with Models 1 plus division in London.
To be in London for a month at the age of 18 is something I will never forget, What a dream! Most importantly I have never felt more comfortable in my own skin. Never in my dreams growing up did I think I was going to be a model of any sort! I was made fun of for my size and now here I am embracing ALL of my curves. For me the most important thing I will get out of this is to make women and young girls realize that beautiful women come in all shapes and sizes. I wish when I was growing up I had a curvy model Icon to look up to and I’m so proud to be one of these women.
I am still a fresh face to the industry but I am just getting started. I am young and very determined to be the best that I can be. I can’t wait to see whats in store for me next.
