12 Questions, 12 Answers with the beautiful Kaisa Sparkle

Born as Kaisa Henriikka , @kaisasparkle is a plus size model who lives in London. Originally from Finland, this lady doubles as a beauty therapist also. In addition, she’s a huge advocate for plus-sized women. Recently, she was faced with what she likes to call–‘a scandal’, where a nightclub promoter body-shames her and other plus-size women. This intensified her zeal to stand for her rights, as well as those of all women who’d been deprived of things, because of their size. In this interview, however, we get to know the real Kaisa– who she is, what she loves & more. Let’s get started…

To begin with, Kaisa spoke briefly about herself and her job. 

“I am a plus size model in London, and I love to spread the word of body positivity and looking good in any size”, she said. When asked about her favorite brands, she answers; “Lovedrobe, SimplyBe, New Look, Scarlett&Jo, Zalinah White, Zizzi”. 

Just like everyone else, Kaisa has a go-to outfit, which is–‘High waisted skirt and a deep plunge top with colourful high heels’. And for her celebrity crush, you could never guess! Kaisa will probably have to move to Wakanda for this to happen lol.
“My celebrity crush is Michael B. Jordan from Black Panther”, she ecstatically states.

We went further to ask Kaisa about her job and the experiences she’s had so far

First off, she described an exciting trip she took as a model.

“My photoshoot in New Delhi, India. It was 42 degrees, I was wearing a saree and we were shooting at the ruins of a graveyard. It was magical!”, she explains.

Then we got into the subject of social media and how it affected her work. Kaisa believes social media has helped a lot in getting her out there. More people to meet, and more business deals too. “It has been a channel for new photoshoots and collaborations, and also a channel to voice out the word of bodypositivity”, she added.

However, just as every rising icon, she’s faced some backlash on social media and highlights, in particular, the issue of ‘body-shaming’. “What I hate most about social media is people’s lack of accepting all kinds of bodies”, she reveals.

Talk of bad experiences, Kaisa stated that it’s not all rosy for her in the modelling world. She says that because of her size ( size 18, EUR 46), some people turn her down. “Sometimes I get disregarded in casting calls because I don’t fit the ‘standard’ size of a model”.

Possibly because of this, Kaisa says if she has to change anything in the world, it’d be how people viewed others, in all aspects.

“I would stop the discrimination, and have mutual respect for everyone regardless of their religion, size, background or beliefs”.

Still on social media, Sparkle lists some of her favorite influencers.

“My favorite social media influencers have to be Latecia T, Ashley Graham, StyleandCurve, Chloe Elliott and Denise Bidot. I love their styles and what they individually stand for.”

One secret her followers…and the world doesn’t know is that Kaisa can sing!

“Here’ something I’ve somehow kept secret from my followers–I am actually a singer, and a certified beauty therapist”.

We sure can’t wait for Kaisa to release her first single 🙂

To conclude the interview, in light of her recent ‘scandal’– where a nightclub promoter tells her that she cannot have more than two plus-size friends at HER OWN club party, Kaisa has a few words.

“I hope through this ‘scandal’ that has spread all over Europe, the social event organizers will open their eyes and stop discrimination. 

“I will continue to be the front face fighter against fat shaming, and defend plus size women and their rights”
