Q&A with:

Sarah

Why did you want to be apart of this campaign/photoshoot?

I struggle a lot with other’s perceptions of me. I tend to worry how other’s think I look, how they think I am and just want to accept me for me.

What would you say is your biggest insecurity and why?

My biggest insecurity is my legs. I played so many sports and was born with “big bones” so I’ve always struggled with the fact my legs are bigger than everyone else.

The best descriptive word you’d give yourself and why?

Loving and kind because I put so much value into showing others the love I’ve always wanted others to show me.

When did your body image issues start and how did you know?

My body image issues started in middle school. I started to realize I was overweight and grew very self-conscious of my image. I knew because I started to spend hours getting ready and dieting to lose weight.

Past advice you would give yourself regarding body image or self-love?

Your body is like your personality, uniquely you. It is a gift from God and you should treasure it, not discount it because of its’ diversity.

What do you love about yourself, physically or otherwise, and why?

I love the way I can make others smile. Whether it be from embarrassing myself, telling a bad joke, etc. I love to laugh to laugh with others and bring happiness to even the worst of days.
