Alt TextI used to draw dancing figurines with smaller forms, but in one particular group, I wondered why a larger or softer body couldn't be just as powerful as a smaller one. I challenged myself to embrace my body shape and size and recognize that although I may not look a certain way, I still embody all of the qualities that are glorified in other body types. I have just as much strength, wisdom, beauty, and hope as anyone does. We all do.
