Let’s face it – Body Acceptance is a great movement, but not every girl has an easy time accepting her body, no matter how much encouragement she has. People can tell you you’re beautiful until your ears fall off, but it won’t be true until you believe it.
Growing up, I was the fattest kid in school, but never really noticed it – that is, until puberty hit. The combination of depression, habit, stress, poor diet, comfort eating, peer pressure, and more led to my obesity, which led to anorexia and bulimia in middle school and early high school, which then turned into shameful behavior for self-validation, such as being promiscuous, drinking, doing drugs, all to try and find where I belong.
Now at age 24 and a size 18, I am a hard working professional, as well as an aspiring actress and plus model.
My journey to self-discovery sure ain’t over, but why not share my life experience with young girls to encourage them to make better choices than I did.
Its OK to be CURVY, THICK, FULL FIGURED – whatever you want to call it – OWN YOUR BODY
