In today’s society, I feel there is so much pressure to be perfect. Body shaming is quite common and can be very hurtful. Considering I spend most of my life in a bikini, I feel a lot of pressure to have that so called perfect “bikini body”. I have continuously struggled with body image issues and hope that I can be a positive, healthy, role model for young girls like myself. I have recently learned to love myself and to accept that it is beautiful to be happy, healthy, and strong. Please don’t let society tell you otherwise! Just remember that we are all unique and perfectly imperfect!
