According to reports, McLaughlin is from the East Coast and in her early 20’s. The Savage team reportedly reached out to Tamera about having an interest in working with her after viewing some of her viral Instagram content.
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. “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.” (BuzzFeed)
Tamara recently went to her social media pages to share a glimpse at herself modeling Savage x Fenty.
