“They’re forgetting I’m Human too and I deserve Everything a smaller Body can Have. I have lost some Jobs because I’m FAT Lost some relationships becos I’m FAT.

“Some People in the industry don’t take me serious Because I’m FAT. BUT (And I also gain a lot of things because I’m fat, Met amazing people who worked with me just because of the way I look. My first international appearance was because I’m Fat... I can’t begin to count my blessings because it’s too much So In life, you lose some and Win some).

“Why do you have to see my Body First? I’m intelligent, Smart, Hard Working And Beautiful

“Some will even Say ‘if you love yourself you won’t look like that..’ No wonder a lot of women do crazy things to their Body just to be accepted. Imagine Living in Nigeria (which is already Hard due to Bad Governance)

“I will have to struggle with the bad Government and still Fight Body shamers. SAD SAD SAD

“Then the Concerned Trolls, Who will tell you FAT is unhealthy and you may die soon. Or they’re worried about your old age.

“Stop Stop Stop. My Body is mine! You have no right to Shame it. I shouldn’t be a threat to You.

“I will not Shrink Myself To Please You. There is Nothing Wrong With my Body. Let’s Normalize FAT Bodies. Stop Body Shaming. My ancestors are FAT.”
