"It is fair to say that great strides are being made by many to make the fitness space more inclusive. Yet, if social media, gym adverts and messages from general pop-culture are to be believed, I don’t exist."

"My goal is to be a driver of change and carry out work that empowers women and girls"

I want representation, I want to see more women who look like me. I want to see Black women, women with their natural hair, plus size women having fun and jiggling their beauty. Women breaking stereotypes and not living up to Eurocentric standards of beauty. I want to see size inclusivity in fashion collections and women not giving into the pressures of social media 'body goals' to be accepted or feel worthy. I really want to see more women being unapologetic in their skin, being brave, being vocal and being seen.

So I became her.
