We had the good fortune of connecting with Nicole “Heaven” Mosley and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nicole “Heaven”, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Taking risks has played a huge role in the success of my modeling career. Had I not taken a step outside of my comfort zone, I would have never known I had the potential to enter into the modeling arena at all. I always thought models had to look a certain way (industry standard), but pushing through the in the curvy model ARENA has become a positive and empactful way to encourage all size models that anything is possible if you just take that first step!

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.
Seven years of dedication, time, focus and continued work has led me to where I am today. Dallas has been a tough market to break into but times are changing. I see Dallas opening up and expressing their talents and needs to grow. I’m excited to see this. I want people to know that my HEAVEN brand developed because of my spiritual background and my belief that any and all things are possible if you just have faith. Even if you don’t know exactly where you’re going, just take that first step and HAVE FAITH!

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?
My absolute favorite thing to do is sit on a patio and enjoy a nice margarita! Campazanos is my all time favorite. I also suggest venturing to Trinity Groves in Dallas. Beto and Son and Saint Rocco’s Italian are two spots there you cannot miss. Next, we would stop by Klyde Warren Park and take a stroll. AT&T Center downtown would be a nice nightly adventure.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to thank Erykah Lacour with Distinctiv Class Models in Dallas, Texas for seeing something rare in me that I didn’t even see in myself. She encouraged me in my full figured size and always told me I was beautiful! My training experience comes from the experience I obtained there working as Trainer for other eager curvy models just starting their careers.. I also want to thank my current mentor and Midora Smith who is the creative director for sapphire chic modeling group in Arlington, Texas for all she has entrusted and instilled in me over the last year. She’s an absolute gem and has allowed me to take on the Development Director role with her group. I’ve been having the time of my life and enjoy working with each and every one of these beautiful models. Lastly, thanks to all of my friends and family that have supported me in any capacity along the way. Without you, I would never have continued to pursue modeling.
