New exclusive digital editorial starring Maria Sillandi.

Maria: "I started modeling back when I was 17 years old. I was discovered in Estonia in a fast food restaurant. As I was not in the best shape at the time I had to loose weight to be able to model on a higher level. I was struggling, and if I had to go back in time I would not repeat it. I had to eat a certain amount of calories per day, was measuring my food, loosing hair etc. Sadly that caused an eating disorder, which many women unfortunately struggle with as well. After that I found a different agency in London which works with curvy & plus size models, they accepted m and that made me feel comfortable with myself. That is how it should be.'
