Sometimes, the root of discrimination stems from a place of misapprehension, coupled with a herd mentality. So, the only way to rid the world of this discordant act is to find the will to understand fully. Each of us is a book waiting to be read. If people find the time to read each book, it results in a circumstance where a person is understood and appreciated. In other words, the secret to eradicating prejudice is to foster an environment filled with compassion and understanding. And as one of the foremost advocates of revolutionizing the world towards a discrimination-free society, Brianna Uribe uses her platform, Uribecastings, to become the voice of the misunderstood.
After spending years in a highly-maintained industry such as fashion and modeling, Brianna Uribe observed how discrimination plagued the trade, which resulted in becoming a standard. While others continue to uphold this ridiculous caliber of beauty, some impeccable individuals, like Brianna Uribe, take it upon themselves to stand out to initiate a revolutionary movement against discrimination. As a leading figure for promoting diversity, Brianna used her experiences and decided to create Uribecastings.
Uribecastings is a casting agency designed to celebrate cultural differences and diversity by working with stunning models, ranging from sizes extra small to extra large, and eventually transforming them into the industry’s most sought-after models. It builds the models’ portfolios and improves their skills to help them get ahead in fashion and modeling. And proving to be passionate in its work, the agency provides various facilitative strategies and works hard to ensure that the models get hired for several projects across the industry. To simply put, the agency is a breeding ground for premium models where they effectively hone their skills and talents to prepare them for a brighter future ahead.
But aside from its unparalleled passion for improving the careers of diverse models, Uribecastings’ most important mission is to serve as a platform for individuals to express their frustrations and become beacons of hope for people of different shapes, sizes, and colors. On top of that, it also seeks to mold ladies into becoming leading figures that would inspire and mobilize the next generation of models to ground themselves on a mission to revolutionize and promote diversity. And proving to hold strong in its advocacy, the agency has begun to cast male models of different sizes and races.
Although Uribecastings holds a promising reputation all on its own, the company would not have achieved everything without its founder’s experiences that led her to create the agency. When Brianna was still working as a model, she saw how the modeling industry praised skinny women more than others. As a matter of fact, Brianna experienced discrimination, which made her feel bad about herself. Determined to change these unfortunate circumstances in the industry, Uribecastings came into existence.
In the years to come, Brianna Uribe hopes to expand its reach and see the fashion and modeling industry change into a safe space where individuals of various sizes and races from around the world represent the true definition of beauty across the industry.
