For someone who’s had body image issues since they were a child, I went from hating every inch of my body to showing every inch of my body to the entire world and without touching up anything. I wouldn’t have done that six months ago, because I didn’t have the confidence that I do today. A lot of times I get frustrated because people will, without my consent, Photoshop my body and it doesn’t look like my own body.

But I’m also prepared to keep fighting through it.
