My best friends niece is on the running for a chance to win a scholarship. This brave young lady has decided to share a personal story to help other rape victims. Her mission is to remind victims that they are NOT ALONE in their struggle. This girl has been through more struggles in her 18 years than so many adults I know. I cannot express the amount of pride I have for her to share something so deeply personal to help others. Please, if you can take the time to post cat memes and ice bucket challenges, find ten seconds to cast a vote for this young lady. And even more, take another two to share this link. Thank you.
At 13 years old I was called “larger than life” because I was overweight. I developed young, and was tormented with accusations of stuffing my bra. I was called Sergeant Stuff-a-Lot and cried every single day. I began to throw up after meals. I avoiding eating, except at lunch period when my friends would comment of I didn’t eat. I lost all the weight — then another depression hit and it bounced back. My weight will always fluctuate. But here I am .. I have a masters degree. I haven’t purged in months. I eat healthy, but make sure to actually eat. Yoga has become my passion. I will always struggle. I will never be 100% happy with my body.
To all those assholes who caused me pain, tears, and terrible memories —- karma is a bitch. One of you even dared to ask for my number. I never forget. And, I’m more successful than you. That’s my biggest revenge. My beauty is beyond skin deep. Thanks for the motivation, haters. You made me a better and stronger woman.
When people ask me why I chose social work as a career, this quote describes it perfectly. I want to help people. I want at least one person to feel a heavy weight lifted, a weight that was so strong they didn’t think they were able to make it anymore. As human beings, we should all care for one another. Making it through my own hard times and overcoming struggles I didn’t think I could made me realize I want to help someone from ever feeling like that. #socialwork #mypassion #mylife #helpothers #dedication #motivation #solidarity #socialjustice

As a teenager, I never thought I would say I’m glad I am just like my mom. Now, I’m proud to say I’m half the woman she is💕my best friend, cheerleader, shoulder to lean on, shopping partner, and my rock when life is complete chaos. Thanks, Mamadukes, for everything you have done and continue to do for me. #lovemymom #bestfriend #mothersday #strongwoman #bestmom
