We had the good fortune of connecting with Morgan Johnson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Morgan, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
RISKS are what changes your life. In order to know in life, you have to take risks because your questions will have answers. I took a risk and I moved across the country in hopes of becoming a plus size model. I didn’t have any job or a place to live but I told myself if it’s for me then it’s for me. If I didn’t take that risk I wouldn’t be signed by two agents working weekly as a plus size model.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
So I started modeling because I wanted to show girls around my campus to wear whatever they wanted! No matter if its a crop with a lil fupa WHO CARES. So then I started getting compliments around campus and even my boss at New Orleans Fashion Week loved my style. From there I realized that I could probably help a lot more girls by being more confident. So I started modeling and getting my pictures taken. From there, I have been living in Los Angeles for almost three years now and signed with two agents. I have worked with companies like Torrid, Truly Beauty, and even got caught up in a Google commercial! My confidence is what sets me apart.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
BEACH everyday, tequila everyday. Nighttime, I feel like we putting on the nice tight dresses and going to a hot bar and telling security “We’re hot, you want us in here!” My hot spots in LA are Nightingale, Station 1640, and the Hightlight room.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Elva Aldrete @elvaaldrete – she’s been my bestie/support/family since I moved to LA and has helped me in so many ways! Her family basically took me in and will forever be grateful to them on my journey of becoming a success story.

I also want to highlight my mom and dad, Tony and Amanda Johnson because I don’t think they hear it enough.
