Yoli from BBMzansi teaches us how to trust ourselves if we’re overweight

Yoli from Big Brother was one of two plus-sized women in this year’s season of Big Brother. She was a rising star with great acting chops and a sense of style rivaled by no one at all. She was NOT shy to be her true self around the house which included not being dressed.
She was obviously confident and now she’s sharing those gems online.

During a Q&A session on her Instagram yesterday evening she opened the floor up for anyone to ask her something. She had her batch of generic questions and statements before one caught my attention. Someone inquired about how to feel more confident as a bigger girl and her answer was quite important.

She claimed you need to surround yourself with positive people and to consume media where you are represented. It’s easy to get caught in a tailspin about being plus size and how it’s “wrong”. The truth is that seeing yourself represented truly makes a difference.

It’s no secret that size representation is not often found in the mainstream media. This advice rang true for me and hopefully many others. We need to change the narrative that bigger people need to be hidden or ashamed. Everyone wants to feel represented everyday, it shouldn’t be conditional.
