Dear Ashley Graham,
I have just read your letter Shamed If I Do, Shamed If I Don’t letter on Lenny Letter. I want to take the time to tell you how much you inspire me to continue to love myself and blog about being curvy woman.
I must say that social media is hard to deal with these days. I dislike seeing you being pulled by one side saying your too fat then the other saying that you are thin. You can’t win !! Geez.
I just want to say to you Ashley to keep doing you. You will always be my role model. You as a model, body activist, everyday, inspire me to be the best person I can be. You are so humble and you are not afraid to use social media to continue to speak out about diversity in the fashion industry. I appreciate you so much. You encourage me to live a better lifestyle by posting your workout regimen on Instagram. You keep me grounded by showing the world how much you love yourself and your body. Ultimately that helps me love myself from head to toe. Lastly, you push me to live outside my comfort zone. I push the edge more and more when I blog.
I am not saying that this is easy for me but I become a better person everyday. I walk to the beat of my own drum know. Literally I hear a marching back when I walk LOL. Because you Ashley you make me feel more comfortable and confident everyday.
From a plus size/curvy women that learning how to love the skin and body she is in..
Thank you and I appreciate you.
P.S. You reached me !!!
