“I’m a plus-size model and body positive activist, which basically means I talk about issues with body image, and how media and society play a negative and positive role in our lives and relationships with our bodies,” she said.
“I started my body positive movement Eff Your Beauty Standards as my ‘Eff You’ to the ‘rules’ of what plus women are told we should and shouldn’t wear.”
The Eff Your Beauty Standards movement has been a runaway success, with thousands of people sharing photos online using the hashtag #effyourbeautystandards.
The movement encourages embracing your looks and defying traditional beauty norms, celebrating curves, body hair, tattoos and bold fashion choices.
