Plus-size? More Like My Size | Ashley Graham | TEDxBerkleeValencia
“I felt free once I realized I was never going to fit the narrow mold that society wanted me to fit in. I was never going to be “perfect” enough for an industry that defines perfection from the outside in. And that’s okay!” – Ashley Graham
It’s no secret that we all have different body types. That none of us is the symbol of “perfection” that we imagine in our heads. It’s pure fiction, but it’s fiction that we’ve adopted into our lives and named our reality.
Her inspiring words will help you to break away from the idea that you are not good enough, that you are not perfect just the way you are. She shares how she broke down barriers and did what she believed she could despite what everyone else thought.
Ashley reminds us that everything that she has done and continues to do is made possible because she made the decision to love her body AS IS. She embraces “her size” and invites us all to begin embracing ours.
