New York-based model Anita Marshall has been in everything from catalogs to runways.
Anita Marshall was born and raised in Boston, MA by her mother and grandmother. I decided to give modeling a shot maybe about 2010.

The first time Anita Marshall started working as a model, she quit after a casting agent told her she was “too fat.”
In the interim she got a job at Sephora, where a pushy co-worker kept asking her why she wasn’t modeling.
Finally, Marshall caved and asked, “Listen, if I try one more time, will you leave me alone?” She sent some pictures to the Dorothy Combs modeling agency, and soon Combs herself called to say she was sending over a contract.
Thank god for that pushy co-worker, because Marshall has since gone on to be Curvy Model of the Month for several magazines and modelled for Khloé Kardashian’s label Good American.
Anita Marshall made her SI Swimsuit debut in 2020. Anita is perhaps best known for her work with brands like Essence, Good American and Lane Bryant. This curvy beauty was discovered by submitting her photos to Dorothy Combs Models.
Since then, Anita has gone on to do work with major companies like Macy’s and Nordstrom, where she represents women like herself who are a 14/16.
