Thaddeus Coates
Mr. Positivity   
"On Twitter I was like, 'I want to model for ASOS'—this big online company, with a lot of 'models of size.' One of my online friends said he could hook me up with casting calls, and I went to one for American Eagle. There I met Lauren, the lady who changed everything. She gave me two pairs of jeans. Trying on jeans is daunting for me usually, but this was like when Cinderella put on that glass slipper. I was excited—not because I was getting cast, but because my jeans fit." Click here to read Hue’s full conversation with Thaddeus Coates, Advertising and Digital Design ’20.
