Chubby Vogue Diva #15

©Charmain Carrol Photography 076 1810009 (5 of 33)My name is Sindisiwe Khuzwayo also known as “Mapuku”.

I am a Colourful 26 year old.

©Charmain Carrol Photography 076 1810009 (29 of 33)I was born bread and buttered in Kwamashu, Durban.

I feel no shame in saying this. I am not fishing for compliments; I am not putting myself down. It is simply a statement of fact – I am Chubby, I am Beautiful and I Love myself the way I am.

It has actually taken me a while to accept my body because I was slim and gained weight after I had my beautiful baby boy. I had people telling me that I looked much better when I was slim. Others would tell me that I have a double chin and you could hardly see my neck. My mother would say to me “my child you don’t look your age anymore because of your weight, you need to do something”and it worried me.

The list is endless but it didn’t stop me from loving me unconditionally, it didn’t stop me from being a person who is positive about every aspect of life. I like delicious food, I like to talk, I like to read, I love people, I like to laugh so much that I cry, I love romantic movies, I love to listen. I like to do thought experiment when I can’t sleep in the middle of the night. I cry a lot, I cry when I’m happy, I cry when I’m sad, I cry when someone is going through a rough time.

My photo shoot made me feel so good; it made me appreciate myself even more I can say with pride that I Sindi Khuzwayo have “self love” and nobody can take that away from me.

“If you want to be loved my others, you need to love and appreciate yourself first”
