A Body Warrior to Meet: Erin
What I love about myself: That I am a healthy and active individual.
My biggest challenge in accepting my body and beauty: Is to realize that I don’t have to fit in with Hollywood and the media. As long as I am happy with the way I look then that is all that matters (provided that I stay healthy).
My biggest support in learning to appreciate myself: God and my mom
Beauty is: Beauty is definitely in the eyes of the beholder. I believe everyone has their own interpretation of beauty and what it means. Some people believe it is all physical and other’s believe it is all emotional. Me, personally, I believe it is a combination of both and only both. You can definitely have one or the other but beauty to me is a combination of everything.
Why I am strong: My mother made me the strong person that I am today. She is a very strong woman and has had to overcome many obstacles in her life ~ Never did she keep herself down or have a negative attitude. She is the lady that everyone, especially me, turns to for guidance and support.
What women must know: That it is easy to fall into the traps of society. They always want us to be skinnier, tanner, prettier, and faker, but it is our decision as to how we perceive beauty.
