Hello Beautiful

Jessica's Campaign // Vision of Rose Photo

I challenged my 2017-2018 Spokesmodels to think of a cause that means something to them and to plan a photo shoot designated around their chosen campaign. The ladies worked hard and I'm so proud to present their campaigns to you!! 


Jessica's Body Positivity Campaign

Growing up I was always the chunky girl, the biggest one in my class. As a kid I just knew I would never get asked to the dance, boys would never like me, & I couldn’t possibly be like those other girls they chased around at recess. Going through middle school and even high-school nothing much changed. I just grew thick skin, and the ability to laugh off all the “fat jokes” . I was still the biggest cheerleader, the biggest in my class, and when people described me to someone that I didn’t know they’d still say “Oh you know, the bigger girl”. It didn’t help that all you saw on TV was picture perfect models, actresses, and people in the music industry. I remember thinking “Wo, no one looks like me, I’ll never have a chance to do any of these things. Who would want me to?” But my senior year of high-school and furthermore after I graduated is when everything began changing for me.

Over the course of those two years I decided if I didn’t see myself represented, I’d do it then. I’d give other girls like me someone to look at that looks like them. We deserve to be seen. Your body type does not determine your worth. It does not determine how “sexy” “desirable” “beautiful” or “fashionable” you are. EveryBODY is beautiful. From a size 00 to a size 32, anywhere in between or above. You should ALWAYS love yourself.

Your body will change SO MUCH over the course of your lifetime. It is the vessel that carries you through it all. You have got to give love to yourself, at whatever stage you’re at. If you don’t love your body now, then when? When will you start? From this moment right here, onward, I challenge every single one of you to unapologetically love your self. Everyday look in the mirror and pick ONE good thing you see. Until everything you see is good. You may not be perfect or where you want to be, your body may still be changing, you might want to lose weight or gain it.. but if you don’t love the before, how will you fully love your after?
