“Cystum of Curves” is a blog that truly explores the journey of Plus Model Lorna Finn and her voice, passions, and body positive message. The word “cystum” was derived from the word cyst, a characteristic of PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome); a syndrome that Lorna herself suffers from. PCOS is known to attack the femininity of being a woman, and more importantly, makes it difficult to achieve weight-loss. However, instead of letting PCOS get her down, Lorna decided to transform herself and use her syndrome as a platform for inspiration and motivation for others as well as in her pursuit of modeling. Her focus is to establish a creative space that addresses wisdom, beauty, health, and fashion, as it relates to curvy women, big or small. As a model, she hopes that she inspires other women to ‘love the curves they’re in’ and to encourage every woman to be bold in their chosen life paths.
Lorna began her modeling journey in January of 2016. In her short tenure within the modeling community, she has been featured on fashion blogs and social network outlets for the plus industry, completed campaigns for Rocksbox Jewelry as a brand influencer, is a brand ambassador for Curvy Girl Chronicles, walked in District of Curves Fashion Showcase in Washington D.C., been published in the local news paper, and booked fashion campaigns for local boutiques in the area. She only sees this as the beginning to her success. Currently, Lorna is a Contract Specialist for the Federal Government, where she lives out her professional passions. Her writing style is highly influenced by her professional development; possessing a level of eloquence that will surely keep readers captivated.
