She continued, “I know how it feels. I’ve been a victim of body shaming and bullying. It does take time to learn to love yourself but you’ll get there one day. Trust me. It took time for me but I learned to truly love myself, be happy, and not give a damn about what other people think of me.

I know I look unflattering in that photo. But you know what? I don’t care. I am proud of the woman I am today and nothing will ever shake my confidence and my love for myself. I know how it feels. I’ve been a victim of body shaming and bullying. It does take time to learn to love yourself but you’ll get there one day. Trust me. It took time for me but I learned to truly love myself, be happy, and not give a damn about what other people think of me. Ladies (and gents), its time we love ourselves for who we truly are. Never be ashamed of yourself. Never be ashamed of what or who makes you happy. Its time to show the media and everyone else that we won’t be swayed by their standards and the crazy standards set by society. No matter what color, race, religion, shape, or size. Love yourself, queen. #ConfidentlyCurvy #LoveYourselfQueen
