Ms. Full-Figured D.M.V. Plus Queen 2018 & Rising Star Award Winner Latrice Wiggins
Meet beautiful and spunky Latrice Dominique Wiggins. Hailing from Miami, Florida Latrice moved to Maryland to pursue a career in the educational field. She believes that “Education is the most powerful tool you can use to change the world”, which fuels her passion to continuously impact those students entrusted in her care. Through this she hopes to enable them to use their educational power as a tool to propel them into their future endeavors. Along with her passion to inspire students academically, she also believes emotional care is just as important. She has worked mentoring young girls in various capacities, with the common goal being to uplift, empower and enlighten young women as they grow into their next phases of life. From her desire to see girls flourish into beautifully confident young women was born the Kurvy Butterfly Kloset. This initiative seeks to provide chic and trendy clothing to full-figured young women living in foster care, while also rebuilding their confidence through mentoring. Latrice made her debut into the world of pageantry and modeling through the 2nd annual Ms. Full-Figured D.M.V competition. Inspired by the work that she was doing with her mentees and a desire to achieve personal goals, she embarked upon a continued journey of self-love and discovery. Dubbing herself The Kurvy Butterfly, she uses her experiences and journey to weave a colorful tale of how her confidence and self-awareness has evolved throughout this process. She intends to continue to use her platform to push other young women to live their lives out loud, free from the opinions and negativity of others because size, beauty and confidence CAN live on the same hanger!
