WHY DID YOU WANT TO BE APART OF THIS CAMPAIGN/PHOTOSHOOT?
I wanted to do the shoot because I’ve never been super confident in how I look but I started to feel more confident this summer so I went for it; it was so empowering!
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS YOUR BIGGEST INSECURITY AND WHY?
Biggest insecurity: my thighs they're “strong Polish thighs” as my mom says but they’ve always been thicker. I noticed this when I hit puberty before the other girls did. My thighs grew overnight and haven’t stopped. I would tell my younger self that i should start the self-love sooner and acknowledge that my legs are strong more than anything. I’d also say to rock what I’ve got because this is what I was born with and that is beautiful.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOURSELF, PHYSICALLY OR OTHERWISE, AND WHY?
I’ve learned to love my legs- they’re strong and are capable of SO much! But my back is my favorite it was something i ignored before but working those muscles empowers me! Plus it keeps me standing tall with my chin up, especially when I’m feeling down. I also love my compassion for others I feel great when I can help someone feel happy, strong or believe in themselves.
Past advice you would give yourself regarding body image or self-love?
Find yourself and what you’re confident in, Appreciate what makes you happy.
