16 year old Sofy Maxman and student at The Beacon School in Manhattan, became a Shortstack model in 2009. Sofy travels in from Manhattan to Queens weekly and religiously because she believes strongly in the message that Shortstack sends.

The message rings so loudly with Sofy, that she joined forces with her friend Kiley Zachs to create a project for a gallery that will be on display in Chelsea about the tolerance of beauty and the media. “We chose this project because we wanted to interview girls in our grade, younger and older about their views on beauty and the media, and let other people see what our peers were thinking and feeling” states Sofy.
