 Toshada Uma
 

Toshada Uma is an 18-year-old petite model, blogger and social media maven who has alopecia. Standing at just 4'8'', Uma is definitely creating a name for herself in the industry. Besides breaking barriers in modeling, Uma is also helping expose her followers to an unconventional type of beauty. Through her custom-made wigs, DIY beauty projects, beauty tutorials and blogging, Uma is helping people think of beauty in a completely new way. When asked if she thinks there's room in the fashion industry for petite models, Uma says "definitely". As she puts it, "I feel like that is the one body type that is so under represented in the fashion scene. We opened our arms up to plus size models, to tall women, to medium height women, to all sorts of body types, but I feel like tiny women have been sort of excluded from this movement."
