Thick Leeyonce lives and breathes self-love and body positivity. She made international news this year, with the likes of Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande applauding her. Learn more about her:
What do you love most about your body?
My belly and legs – I love how my thighs curve.
What does body positivity mean to you?
Understanding that you’re unique and beautiful. Being body positive means celebrating your own kind of beauty, even if it doesn’t match that of societal standards.
Why do you think it’s important to redefine the ‘bikini body’?
Redefine the bikini body to show other girls and women that there is nothing wrong with how they look. The idea that one has to look a certain way to rock a swimsuit can be a trigger for low self-esteem.
What does owning your swimwear mean to you?
Wearing it confidently, being sure of yourself, and not giving a single damn about what people say.
What is your body-positive message to other women in one sentence?
Learn to love the body you’re in. Then work on the body you want.
If you could send your body a love letter, what would you say?
You’re soft like jelly – I wanna touch you and love you forever…
