I am Evelyn N Msibi
I am 19 years old
I was born in Johannesburg but I was raised in the Free State by my grandmother.
Bieng Chubby to me means nothing, I can just be myself, there is no difference between skinny and big for me, I am me.
I actually love being big, because big is better.
I have always been the way that I am now, from a young age i was chubby, but there was a point in my life when I wanted to be skinny because society had always portrayed skinny as the accepted norm for weight. Skinny was\ still seen is as Beautiful.
Yes I was teased, I have been called fat and all sorts of kind of names, but I never let it get me down, I have always loved myself and my family has supported me. They have taught me to love and i will be loved. We can’t all be the same weight, same height, same colour, so I embraced my weight and feel good about it.
A movie called Phat Girls actually made me fully accept myself for who I am. I immediately thought of myself as a Beautiful Chubby model.
I wanted to be a designer that specifically designs clothes for Chubby Models just like me.
I Never let anyone tell you that you cannot do it because of your weight and that you are big, and accept your body, that way whatever people say will never stand in your way.
If you have it Flaunt it.
