Hey curvy girls all over the world,
On Monday, I got to spend an entire day at the United Nations for a runway show and a women’s empowerment lunch. The luncheon included celebrity speakers like Jill Scott, who read a beautiful spirit stirring poem. Sherri Shepherd who spoke about body acceptance and had a hilarious joke about her ex-husbands. More speakers included new author and stylist, Susan Moses, Mikki Taylor, and Broadway star, Danielle Brooks. They all spoke about self love and self respect.
While I was sitting there listening, it got me to thinking about how I wanted to use my platform to change the world. How could I encourage women. Sometimes, we think we have to be celebrities or rich people to make a valuable change in the world or in other people’s life. The truth is we don’t. Social media has given us a platform that allows us to reach people all over the world without being famous or rich. Each and everyone of us can impact the world. Whatever it is your passionate about or whatever you see needs changing in your community or in this world, you have the power and thanks to the internet, the resources to do it.
For the event, I wore this beautiful Simply Be striped midi dress. You may remember it from my latest Youtube video. The fit was perfect. I ordered my size based on the size chart. I styled the dress with a pair of black strappy sandals, and a pair of drop earrings from Bauble Bar.
