Beautiful Body Positive Plus-Sized Mainer Competing to Be a Maxim Cover Girl
Jillian Weeks needs your help to grace the cover of Maxim Magazine.
She is 34 years old and born and raised in Maine. She lives in the Bath area and has a 10-year-old daughter, Lileigh.
Jillian has a bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Masters in Psychology, and she's working on her Ph.D. in Forensic Psychology. She is currently in the lead in her 'group' in the Maxim voting process. Jillian is trying to not only be Maxim Cover Girl 2022, but also win $25,000, fly to France for an exclusive photoshoot, and grace the cover of Maxim Magazine! The first cut is Thursday, June 23. She needs your vote right now!
Jillian has dealt with mental health issues and body image issues for the majority of her life. But, she has successfully managed depression for several years. She still has her moments, but nothing that isn't manageable. She says that she grew up thin most of her life until having her daughter. She would hide, never take full-body photos, and live in nothing but black all day every day.
Then in 2019, she started to stick up for herself more and was more open about her struggles. And she began to love her body. You can thank a boudoir photo session with Kristen McKay in Bangor for that, as Jillian loved what the camera captured. She's always admired the confidence of Lizzo, so she decided to put it all out there for a chance to be on Maxim's cover. If she wins, she may just take the advice of friends, family, and photographers and get into plus-sized modeling! You go, Jillian!
