My Journey to Body Positivity formally started in 2007. I was a new Mother, I had just went through a horrible break up and I was alone and unsure of myself. I remember being in the basement of my parents home checking my email when I received an invite to try out to be a contestant for a pageant I had applied to be apart of two years prior.
I eagerly Auditioned for the Miss Canada Plus Pageant, there I met my now good friend Ivory and the rest shall we say is history or (her-story) if you will. Through that Pageant experience jump started a slew of personal and professional discoveries for me. One of which is my journey to self love and a more positive outlook towards my body.
So when I was approached by Ivory in 2016 to join her along with 5 other amazing women on a mission to spread the message of self love, to end fat/food shaming and much more, I hopped all over it!
And just like that May 6th, 2016 “The Succulent Six” were born.
Since then our crew lost a member, Julia A.K.A. “Dirty Dottie Doughnuts” moved on to pursue her own business and we are so proud of her accomplishments thus far.
As for the rest of the Crew we were blessed with the opportunity to film an original series produced by General Purpose Entertainment and showcased on the CBC life network. If you are in Canada you can watch the series by logging on to www.cbc.ca/watch or by downloading the CBC App for free.
For our International Friends, you can watch us on YouTube every Tuesday clicking (HERE)
