The One Whose Confidence Inspires Others

The One Whose Confidence Inspires Others

I am an advocate for self love and body positivity. I realized how important my work was when my cousin told me she admired me for being confident and vocal about my self love journey. She didn’t recognize confident, bigger women in the media so when she saw that I was acting, blogging, and modeling it gave her a new perspective and acceptance of her body.

After hearing her story, I realized I was on the right path and decided I needed to make a deeper commitment to myself to ensure I continued on this journey of self love, image acceptance, and body positivity. My Self Love Pinky Ring is how I memorialized that commitment.
