I Expose My Body To Inspire Upcoming Models—Beverly Osu
In an interview with Naij, Beverly explained that she expose her skin as her “own way of teaching up-and-coming models how to be comfortable with their body.”
Beverly said she “got into modelling by being a lingerie model. Actually, I forced myself to be a lingerie model because I never liked being a runway model.”
“Before, I was a size 14 but due to what I wanted to become, I had to shed the weight. Basically, I want to teach people to be comfortable in their own skin. People think I expose too much but I think it’s just my skin, you did not see anything,” she further said.
Beverly explained why she started her own NGO, which would be looking to support those living in slums.
“While on a movie set in Ajah, I saw some young guys filling a canoe with sand. So I approached them, seeking to know how much they get paid for the job. Surprisingly, one of them said, ‘N500.’ Immediately, I said to myself: ‘Damn, people are suffering.’
” After my movie shoot, my project manager told me, “Let’s do something with the slum.” So we decided to start from Port Harcourt and by the grace of God, we will touch lives in every part of the country,” she said.
