Real friends are hard to find

When you have a friend who checks on you and wants nothing but the best for you, keep them dear; such souls are rare.

People are naturally selfish, so when someone gets in their way to make you feel better, loved, and appreciated; never for any reason lose that kind of person; they are rare.

When I lost my mom I felt the whole world was against me; everywhere I went I felt so vulnerable and weak, at that point I had no shoulder to lean, no one cared about me. I was slowly losing my self-esteem and confidence and there was no way I could stop it.

My mom was my best friend and she knew me in and out; she was my spokesman all the time especially when I was always picked on by my peers in Sunday school. I was a chubby child and people chose to call me fat, unhealthy and all sorts of names; my mom was always there to shun them each time they picked on me, but now she’s gone I feel like my world is crumbling.

After my mom’s burial, I took a year off before I got into college; no one wanted to associate with me during my first year. It was during my second year that I met my lucky charm; she made me view myself from another angle; she built my self-confidence and once again my skin glow started coming back again.

She introduced me to modeling and ever since then I have encouraged a lot of plus-size women all over the world to be happy for whom they are.
