Mahogany lives in Tennessee. She was born with a rare condition called lymphedema, which causes swelling because of excess fluids collected in the soft tissue of the body. This condition left Geter with a 100-lb leg.

After she was diagnosed with the condition, it was very difficult for her to walk. “It drains my energy, of course, because it’s an extra 100 pounds,” said Mahogany. She does a lot of physiotherapy and massages to manage the fibrosis in her leg.

Struggles and difficulties while growing up

She talked about her struggles while growing up: “I’ve been through a very depressed state because you’re a little kid, and you have a bunch of grown adults staring at you. I will say it probably can affect you more mentally and emotionally,” said Mahogany.

Mahogany said: “As a child, I never felt pretty. I felt ugly, like a freak of nature, and cried in private so many times.” She turned down every surgery doctors suggested to her, and accepted herself as she was.

Her modeling journey started in 2017

Mahogany worked at Walmart. Her life changed for the better when she was offered a modeling job in 2017. A photographer saw her and she let him photograph her. “I was like, ’I’m getting older now, maybe it’s time I start putting my full body out there,’ and hopefully me doing that can help somebody else,” said Mahogany.

Mahogany was featured in a Youtube video that went viral. That was the starting point of her blooming career. Her social media presence gained a lot of followers instantly. “Mainly, I’ve gotten a lot of positive responses, and the ones I like the most are that it helps people that also feel low about themselves,” said Mahogany.

She wants everyone to embrace their uniqueness

Mahogany stays positive and wants everyone to do the same thing to themselves. She aims for people to embrace their unique features. Mahogany spreads body positivity and encourages people to love themselves. “People have been so nice and supportive of me online. It isn’t all trolling and negativity,” she said.

“If I ever make it big, I want to buy my mother a house and take care of my family, then I’ll do everything I can to raise awareness of lymphedema to pay it back to everyone who has ever shown me kindness,” said Mahogany.

Her journey has inspired many.

Struggles have made Mahogany stronger. She uses her condition to inspire other people. “For the longest, I felt so low about myself, but once I got older and with loads of support from the online lymphedema community and my mom who is my inspiration, I realized how beautiful I am. Not only looks, but as a person,” she said.
