Markia Shorter
Naturalista of the Week

Who is Markia Shorter?

Markia Shorter is a naturalista, mom and aspiring fashion stylist. By day, she wears her kinks and curls as an insurance agent in St. Petersburg, Florida

Very family oriented, she is rebounding from the passing of her mother, which happened two years ago. She has four siblings in total and is engaged to her “other half/best friend.” Her son is only four months old and she deems him “a beautiful gift from God.”

She also freelance models for One Throne Apparel, a Clearwater, Florida-based clothing company.

She is a dreamer – a woman with big aspirations. A few of her ambitions are to launch three different clothing lines: one that signifies the beauty of all curvy  women around the world, one for infant boys and one that is a  non-profit helping to promote confidence in young women of all nationalities across the globe.

For over 9 years, she has volunteered at her church in dance ministry, in group studies and mentoring the teens.

Her hope is to “never stop dreaming even when it becomes reality...”
