If you follow me on Instagram then you probably saw this post awhile back where I shared that I got my very first print story published (!) in the May issue of Cosmopolitan! Writing this story for me was an amazing experience both professionally and emotionally. For one, I feel honored to have been able to share my thoughts and story on such an important topic (self esteem and body image) and two, writing it was a sort of release of the whole thing for me. Almost like a cathartic goodbye to all the bullshit I used to put myself through in the name of having a “perfect” LA body.
