"Words from the Queen:"
My name is Daniela Ann Durante. I'm
a 29-yr old Latina woman, single mother to a handsome baby boy, and a model with a wonderful, outgoing personality! I began
modeling at age 15 by starting out in a basic, everyday agency. As the years went on, I gained more and more experience in
all different fields, from photo shoots, to TV appearances, to Interviews, Websites, etc. All of this has made me into who
I have become today - an aspiring plus-size, curvy model that is on my way to fulfilling my all time dream. I'm definitely
a person that others admire and look up to. I give the inspiration & confidence to those who have dreams like me and those
who just simply need it! I have accomplished a lot for my age and am very proud of all the responsibilities I've taken on
in life. I have hope for my future and faith in my dreams. I am thankful for all the good and bad experiences life has shown
me, because without them I wouldn't be who I am today. Winning the 2012 Wilkes Productions BBW Pageant on August 19, 2012,
has given my modeling career new, special meaning. I have learned that anything is possible when you set your mind to it!
I am looking forward to my reign as 2012-13 Queen of the Big Beautiful Women Pageant!
to my family, friends and all my fans for all the love and support they have given me to make this all possible! Especially
to the "big man upstairs!"
Love, Queen ("Reina") Daniela Ann Durante
