Last quote by Tracee Ellis Ross

Speaking up, sleeping with who we want, eating what our bodies intuitively tell us to eat, wearing training bras instead of push-up bras, posting a picture without using Facetune. . . . We are condemned for thinking for ourselves and being ourselves . . . for owning our experiences, our bodies and our lives.feedback

I went into the bathroom in the ballroom, and I couldn't get in and out of the dress by myself, so my friend who was with me took me out of the dress. We went into the handicapped stall because it had enough room for two of us and laid the dress on the floor.feedback

I remember being very excited by Jennifer Lopez's body. It was the first time I saw a woman with a similar shape to mine being celebrated as sexy… [growing up,] I was obsessed with Madonna, with Christy Turlington. I identified with all these supermodels who were super thin and didn't have the curves I had. I was raised not to judge a book by its cover, so I wasn't focused on the fact that I didn't see a lot of people who looked like me. In hindsight, I understand how it affected [me].feedback
