Savage X Fenty Introduced Their First Little Person Ambassador, And Tamera Is A Force To Be Reckoned With

"While I may be the first little person to become a brand ambassador, I have a positive feeling that I will not be the last!"

Rihanna's Savage X Fenty lingerie line has been hailed for its diversity in both its XS–3X size range, as well as its inclusive fashion shows.

The brand extends its diverse and flirty tempo to the ambassadors it picks to promote its mission, including celebrities like Normani and Megan Thee Stallion, as well as influencers like Loey and Sonny Turner.

Now, Savage is welcoming its latest baddie to the crew: Tamera, who is making history as the brand's first little person ambassador.

Tamera, otherwise known as "Thee Little Person," is a 23-year-old social media influencer from Washington, DC who quickly gained a following after posting dancing videos and comedic sketches. And ever since Rihanna launched Savage X Fenty, Tamera dreamed of one day becoming an ambassador.

"I shared my [dream] with my manager and she began to speak life into me by saying, 'You will get what your heart desires, keep posting and creating a buzz on social media.' A plan was discussed to order a lingerie set from Fenty, plan an exclusive photo shoot, and hopefully gain the attention of Savage X Fenty. The saying was, 'Since they won’t come to me, I’ll go to them!'" Tamera told BuzzFeed. "The week my ordered lingerie shipped, I got an email and it mentioned that they had somehow seen one of my viral videos and Fenty was interested in bringing me aboard as an ambassador! I CRIED IMMEDIATELY. Just that fast, it happened."

After news of her ambassadorship went viral on Twitter, many quickly flooded Tamera's comment section with support.

"My role as the first little person ambassador for the brand represents the idea of bringing awareness to self-love, loving the skin you’re in, and being courageous enough to go after the things your heart desires," Tamera said. "My role represents the notion of leaving doubt and fear that you might not make the cut out of the equation and just walking into your destiny."

"You typically do not see little people modeling for major companies," Tamera continued. "This has been an incredible feeling, and while I may [be] the first little person to become a brand ambassador, I have a positive feeling that I will not be the last!"

So what's next for Tamera? "You all will have to stay tuned to see," she said. "More fire photo shoots for sure, that will most likely feature work from the...photographer Photomatic."
