A couple months ago, I had the pleasure of meeting @tessholliday! I don’t #fangirl over many people, but Tess is someone who really #inspires me. You see, I have the “family curse” of having “pillow arms”. Every woman in my family has em ? For the longest time I thought I could never model because I didn’t have the right shape, or my arms were too big, etc., but then I saw Tess Holliday! She was beautiful, on the cover of magazines, taking over the fashion industry….and she has arms like me!!! She is shaped like me! So when I met her, needless to say, it was a huge life moment. And do you know the first thing she said to me? …..You have arms like me! (YES!!!) In that moment, and ever since, instead of feeling ashamed, or self-conscious, I felt proud! This is my body. It is fearlessly and wonderfully made. It’s mine. And I’m proud. And hopefully my acceptance can help others to accept and embrace themselves, just like how Tess Holliday helped me ?
