I Encourage You to Embrace Your Belly Jelly

Our bodies to do not define our capabilities or our worth. Yet, the lack of confidence we have (#insecurities) get in the way of our happiness and success all of the time. Read my interview with Swaay on why you should embrace your #bellyjelly in order to reach your fullest potential. 

“I realized that everyone deals with body image issues, everyone deals with moments in which they punish themselves with overeating, undereating, over-exercising, under-exercising, and that means we need to have a conversation about it. This was when nothing was really being broadcasted in the media especially about body positivity…there wasn’t really an organization that was creating change, and so I saw a space and a need. I really wanted to do something to help, but I was at the stage where I was still struggling with my own issues and insecurities. So I was like, ‘I should probably figure out my own stuff first before I try to help everyone else. I was insecure of my stomach, and I called the little rolls of my belly my belly jelly.”
