As a mother, woman and writer, I’m constantly asking myself questions. How can I improve my life? How can I grow and change? How can I move forward, inspiring others to do the same? Then Dove asked me has there ever been a time I felt like quitting an activity I loved because of how I felt about my body? The answer is yes. I was seventeen and I entered a singing competition.

I started performing at the age of five. It began with tap dancing and singing. My mother used to make my costumes for me when I performed. She was my biggest fan. As I grew, I continued performing on stage in school musicals, drama club, joined the Jazz Quoir, and I even toured Europe with my classmates. I loved performing. I loved the thrill of being on stage, singing my heart out, listening to the applause. But I mostly loved how it made me feel.
