Miss. N and her Inspirational body confident story.....
HERE IS WHAT SHE SAID!
"Oprah talks about the “aha” moment. A moment of clarity,awareness and an ultimate moment where you actually understand how pieces of life fit in together.
Everyone has their own journey and come to have many if these “aha” moments in their life.My testimony carries so many tears and struggles with inferiority regarding beauty and somehow the world and media adds to this cruel voice that says “YOU are certainly not enough”.
I have come across women(I must admit not many) that go against this grain.That go against this notion that somewhere in history the world decided that women should bear the brunt of public scrutiny and complete and utter bullshit standards.
Simone and The Golden Fox is one such instance.Last year was my “aha moment”.Ridiculous that it had to come at the lowest point in my life.I decided to fight for me. A “me” I somehow lost in between all the absurd standards I had to adhere to which I could never reach.You know that feeling? Always falling short? Always being just not enough for that guy,that job,that summer holiday because you can not fit into that bathing suite,that dress that screams at the seams because you just looked at carbs and those beautiful friends who seem to have it all together on facebook. A kinder approach to my body led to me lose 21kgs and book an appointment with The Golden Fox to celebrate the fact that I kicked some serious ass in the health department.
The Golden Fox shoot was my second “aha” moment.I could not believe She had the capacity to capture all my achievements of my first “aha”moment on a camera.
A stronger, a more confident and a survivor of an eating disorder, pain and heartache. This work should be considered part of a healing process and an astounding realization that your unique beauty has the capacity to have a profound and immeasurable impact on the world. Just as you are now. Your scars,your hurt and your dissapointments do not define you. Your ability to rise from them does.Capture this.Be willing to capture the beauty of imperfection.I consider Simone’s work as part of a movement. A movement where Body positivity should be the focus of visual media and should form part of some serious discussions and debates.Simone creates a space where you can be comfortable and have your own “aha moment”.Imagine a world where women support each other? One where we celebrate each other,comfort each other and constantly tell each other “you are enough” and we actually believe it? We will surely be unstoppable.Thank you Simone for being that platform and using your talent to showcase this.I have a feeling this is only the beginning."
