She is committed to putting forth her body as is and showing anyone with insecurities that they are more than enough just the way they are. Being a voice in this desperately needed change isAs the industry began to shift, she came to realize that her presence could only mean more momentum in a positive direction.
her passion and she hopes to continue to be a leader in the body positive movement.
