Faith is a plus size model who has jumpstarted her career through Instagram. In mid 2015, she started her journey of body positivity, self love and mental health awareness. However, her life long love for fashion was able to shine through, and with that has been given a plethora of opportunities to truly begin her career of modeling which lead her to getting signed in September 2016 with Bicoastal MGMT.
Faith has been featured in People Magazine, NYLON, InStyle, Yahoo, Bustle, Huffington Post Style, Plus Model Magazine, Fab U Plus Magazine as well as Refinery29, Revelist, Advance Magazine and over 25 (and counting) inclusive publications.
Working mainly in New York City, Los Angeles CA, and Philadelphia PA, she knows no bounds in the fashion industry. Print, fit and runway are being taken by storm but not limited by her other work.
In addition to modeling, blogging and being a body positive advocate, Faith also has a passion for mental health awareness. She uses her voice often on social media and participates in panel events and online campaigns to show support and share information.
Not only is Faith building her empire from the ground up and making a name for herself in the fashion world and through her advocacy work, but she also works as a freelance artist. Painting, drawing, illustrating and fine arts in general has been her life's work thus far. She is an artist with ArtSugar which with every purchase a portion goes to a pre-vetted charity of the customers choice. Faith also has a shop through Soceity6. You can support her art by visiting her ArtSugar shop, her Society6 shop, her Instagram page @faithcosta_originalartwork, or her Facebook page.
While currently working as a full time model, influencer, artist and mental health awareness/self love advocate is just the beginning. It's difficult to put Faith in just one category as she is a jack of all trades, but don't let that deter your confidence in that she is an expert in each field. Model, artist, activist, influencer. Welcome to the wonder world of Faith.
