Posting the cover on her Instagram, an excited Patricia wrote:
Look mummy, we made it! My first ever front cover for a magazine. I read in awe growing up. It inspired me and triggered my first sparks and love of fashion and beauty. Never did I ever imagine that a South London girl like me who isn’t a model & considers herself to be fairly average, could be in the amazing and blessed position I am in today. I know there are many who look up and across to me and see themselves in my story and journey. So we’ve done this together darlings and there is so much more to come!
Patricia's easy-charm and straight-talking on any subject, including the pressure to achieve perfection. She said:
"I look at the girls with tiny waists, big boobs and perfect bums, and that's lovely. But that's not my reality, because I love cake!", admits the 31-year old mother-of-one.
My reality might be a bit more squidgy, but I'm still comfortable with who I am and not being perfect. And if I want to change things, that's great, too. Real beauty comes from who you are on the inside and as I've grown into myself, I've realised that beauty genuinely is in the eye of the beholder. There will be people who find you beautiful regardless of society's beauty standards, so find that group. Find the people who love you."
She's also spoke candidly about holding the industry to account, over the lack of inclusion and recalls her own experience growing up with few black role models:
When I was growing up, there weren't many black celebrities in the UK. So, I looked to American women like Oprah and Tyra Banks. I didn't know much about Naomi Campbell, but now I appreciate how great she is. I've seen her at events and she has this amazing grace. When she walks into the room, everyone looks up."
