“When I’m posing naked, I’m not objectifying myself,” Sara tells the magazine about modeling unclothed. “I feel empowered. Yes, the photos are sensual, and yes, there’s a naked body, but that’s not really what it’s about.” In response to critics, she says, “There will always be someone who looks at a picture as trash and someone who looks at it as art,” she states. “I may not fit into the status quo, but I should be allowed to be my own person.”
