FAT ACTIVIST

My activism and advocacy within the F A T community is new, vast and varied. From writing my dissertation research on Fat Women's capacity for Leadership to consulting to clothing brands on how to best market to F A T customers, I am here to help
F A T women be seen, and heard. Inherently feminist, I believe in body positivity, self-love, agency, and unapologetic fierceness.

Confidence has no size.

My body has been the source of much contention for me. It is the place that holds the evidence for my inability to cope with loss. Though it is tricky because as much as it sometimes feels like a prison, it is also where so much of my safety is.

Social justice or the point of bringing attention to social injustices is not to overwhelm you or stifle or sever us. It is to say, hey we are all different in certain ways. Be sensitive to me and my differences and allow me to be sensitive to yours.

So here is what I can say about being fat. It is not all of me, but it is part of who I am. It does not hurt me to call me what I know myself to be. Fat is not a death sentence, fat is not lazy, fat is not jolly or comedic by nature. Fat is not ugly, fat is not so big a flaw that it is the only one that can exist. Fat is fat, nothing more and nothing less.
