Recently Kylie Jenner launched an anti-bullying campaign on Instagram called #IAmMoreThan.

This inspired me to want to share a bit of my story, so here it goes.

Growing up, things weren’t so easy. I was tall, skinny, & socially awkward. I was called anorexic, a “twig” & was told to eat more. When in reality I just had an extremely fast metabolism and ate more food than most.

I had also developed acne problems early on in elementary school. I was called “pizza-face” & was told to go buy some Proactive. As if I didn’t already religiously wash my face twice a day.

My voice wasn’t the most feminine, & while going through puberty my voice would often crack. My “friends” would laugh, telling me my balls still needed to drop. Or they would refer to me as a dyke.

My family wasn’t the wealthiest. So shopping for clothes I stayed in the clearance section & settled for things I really didn’t care for. Clothes hung on me weird, & during your school years, your wardrobe has a major effect on your social status. & I always thought to myself ,”if any of you saw what I looked like in just my bra & panties..”

All of these things affected my self-esteem heavily growing up, & sometimes they still do. Sometimes I’ll read the comments that people post on my feed & it gets under my skin. So many remarks about how “slutty” I am for the content I post online.

When in reality, it’s my body, my choice. I just need to keep reminding myself that what I do makes ME HAPPY & nobody else’s remarks or opinions matter.

Because at the end of the day…

#IAmMoreThan my body.

#IAmMoreThan my face.

#IAmMoreThan my voice.

#IAmMoreThan my clothing or lack of.

Thank you for this movement Kylie, the world needs more people to step up like this.
