Aaron Philip Signs with Elite Model Management
Aaron Philip is looking to smash traditional standards in the modeling industry.
Aaron Philip is on a quest to bring diversity into the modeling world, and she has already taken the Internet by storm.
The 17-year old took to Twitter last November to post some modeling headshots that quickly went viral:

Philip’s goal is to bring more inclusivity into the modeling industry, while simultaneously breaking the stereotype of what is considered beautiful. She is certainly the right person for the job, identifying as a gender non-conforming trans woman.
