Plus size model dead at 36

Plus Size model, PLUS Model Magazine Creative Editor, and "Road Trip" actress Mia Amber Davis, passed away Tuesday at 36 years old.

An advocate for full-figured woman everywhere, Davis was devoted to promoting pride and acceptance in regards to woman of all shapes and sizes.

Although no details of her death have been released, Davis did undergo knee surgery on Monday.

PLUS Model Magazine Editor Madeline Jones had this to say about Davis in a blog post today:

"Mia was a super model and industry leader because it was her love for the women she represented that kept pushing her when the industry itself did not embrace her. Anyone else would have given up, but Mia remained steadfast in her career, knowing that she was not just doing it for her own benefit, but for women of all ages. Never one to put anyone down, Mia was about lifting up people and connecting them with others to help them on their journey and never asking for anything in return."
