Slaying the plus size industry professionally since 2019, Simone Thyke at 53-year-old is finally walking into the space that God created for her. After retiring as a Special Education teacher of over 22 years she is now walking in her purpose and truth as a Professional SSBBW Model, CEO
of Bourgeoisie Clothing Brand, Creative Director of Taffy Magazine BBW, Thyker Magazine and now Jewelz of Elegance Magazine.


After overcoming significant physical and health challenges, this black queen is now taking the Plus-Size world by storm. After only 3 years into her professional modeling career, Mz. Thyke has been featured in 6 publications, self-published her
own calendar and has reached 14.3k followers on Instagram as well as 13.6K followers on TikTok. Currently, she is the host of her own Vlog and Podcast on her YouTube Channel called “Thyke Thoughts,” where she gives helpful advice, though provoking topics and her journey as a plus-size model.
It is her life-long goal to create a magazine that introduces the true luxury lifestyle to people of color through building generational wealth and JEWELZ OF ELEGANCE MAGAZINE was born for that purpose.  Mz Thyke believes that people of color need to create their own pathway to generational wealth independent of companies that offer quick come ups. Entrepreneurship is the only way we can achieve wealth on our terms.  

It is her hope that we travel on this journey together as future billionaires that will ultimate create the pathway and blueprint for future generations to come!
