How Ashley Graham Achieved a Net Worth of $1 Million

Ashley Graham is a famous model who was born on October 30, 1987, in Lincoln, Nebraska. This stunning plus-size model has become one of the best-paid models in the world and has enjoyed many lucrative deals with big brands. She is also establishing herself in television and as an author. While many models earn large sums of money, Graham is currently one of the most financially successful. So, how has Ashley Graham accrued a net worth of over $1 million?

While growing up in Nebraska, she attended Scott Middle School and then Lincoln Southwest High School. While still at school, she was diagnosed with both dyslexia and ADHD. The combination of these two conditions meant that she faced many challenges in her education and many would have believed she would achieve little in her life due to her struggles.

Her future prospects were changed in 200 while she was out shopping in Oak View Mall in Omaha, Nebraska. She was spotted by an agent from the I & I modeling agency. The following year, she attended a modeling convention, and this led to her signing a deal with Wilhelmina Model. Two years later, she signed with Ford Models. In the early stages of her career, she appeared in YM Magazine, was profiled by Vogue magazine, and was on the front cover of Glamour editorial.

She then attracted more attention to herself by appearing in a controversial TV commercial for Lane Byrant. This advert had over 800,000 views on YouTube. Graham also appeared on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ so that she could address the controversy. Although she was right in the midst of this controversy, it did her a lot of favors as it raised her public profile.

Graham’s fame and fortune continued on an upward path when she began to get deals for campaigns for famous clothing brands. She is particularly famous for her involvement in several Levi campaigns and also for her work in Marina Rinaldi campaigns. Other campaigns in which Ashley Graham has modeled include Target, Evans, Simply Be, Liz Claiborne Macy’s, Addition Elle, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, Hanes, and Elomi Lingerie.

Although it is her modeling work that is the predominant reason why Ashley Graham is now a millionaire, this has not been her only source of income. Her work and experiences in the fashion industry have also led to her turning her hand to fashion design and she designed a lingerie line for Addition Elle in 2013.

Ashley Graham has also ventured into a career in the television industry and has already appeared in several television series. Her debut into television was in MTV’s ‘Made’ when she appeared as a coach for an aspiring plus-size model. She is also one of the judges on the VH1 reality series ‘America’s Next Top Model’. For the last two years, she has worked as a backstage host for several televised beauty competitions. These include ‘Miss Universe 2016’, ‘Miss USA 2016’, Miss Universe 2017’ and Miss USA 2017’.

One of Graham’s most recent business ventures was writing her own book, which was released in 2017. This memoir is called ‘A New Model: What Confidence, Beauty, and Power Really Look Like’. In this book, she relates her personal experiences of working in the modeling industry and how she is trying to become an advocate for body positivity. Graham also gives her opinions about how attitudes to body shape are likely to change over the next few years.

Despite having successful careers in several fields, Ashley Graham is not just about earning money. She also spends a lot of time doing charity work and community services. In recent years, she has taken part in several humanitarian missions to South Africa with the Themba Foundation. She is also part of the Health at Every Size movement and has spoken in high schools about positive body image. Ashley Graham is also in a good place in her personal life. In 2009, she met Justin Evran at a Christian church. He works as a videographer. The couple has now been married since 2010.

Ashley Graham continues to work as a model along with her other business ventures. For this reason, it is likely that her personal net worth will continue to rise significantly in upcoming years.
