Masthead Magazine x Things We Love

Enter model Briauna Mariah - unhappy with the status quo of the fashion industry, Briauna decided to Speak up and change the narrative of unrealistic and unhealthy beauty standards by creating We Speak Model Management in 2013 (way ahead of the push for diversity currently trending).

We Speak celebrates people, happiness, and beauty that radiates from the inside out, without placing a label on age, gender, ability, or size. They Speak loud and clear, leading the conversation on true diversity and celebrating models from all walks of life. Because while aspirational images will always be appealing, we believe real beauty lies in truth. Something we can’t seem to get enough of these days.
