Former Real Housewives Of Atlanta cast member, Phaedra Parks isn’t letting a small thing like being booted off the show keep her down. The pint-sized attorney has announced that she has signed a contract with the world-renowned modeling agency, Wilhelmina Models.

Speaking to US Weekly, Parks revealed her goals for her new career:

“I think I’m the face of “yes you can.” I’m a small town girl who has followed her dreams. Yes you can be a mom, yes you can be a lawyer and yes you can be a model. When the opportunity presented itself some people asked me “Why?’ and I said “Why not?” A supermodel started this company and she wanted to give power back to the women and I think I stand for the same things. I have the opportunity to show people that beauty can come in every size, shade, color and age. It’s exciting and an adventure!”
