To be able to design for the plus-sized consumer for me that’s just beyond. It’s a dream.
I’m thrilled to continue my partnership with U by Kotex for Generation Know while helping to empower girls. I’ve always been a motivational resource for my younger sisters and hope I can positively impact and inspire other young girls too.
If you’re too embarrassed and want to hide behind your computer screen that’s what this is for. It’s about building confidence and that’s what U by Kotex does. Girls owning their bodies and health.
I have two younger sisters and I’m such an advocate of owning who you are as a person. Don’t be ashamed or intimidated. Never feel like you are not amazing.
A few years ago I lost 30 pounds and people still wanted to criticize. And honestly I’m happy with myself if I’m a little heavier. I realized: ‘Why am I trying to conform to someone else’s idea of beauty?’ I think I’m beautiful either way.
It’s easier to date a football player for sure. Football players have one game a week and they practice every day but they’re all at home. In basketball they’re on the road all the time.
When I was at home I felt loved and safe. My sisters were always a safe haven for me. I knew they would always play with me and make me feel like I was one of them.
