Hello, hi, welcome. This is a safe space aka a place where we embrace and celebrate all bodies, so if you're down to love your love handles (I know I am), please join me as I reflect on all the #girlpositivity this June!
First, let's begin with the region's first curvy model and all-out superstar Ameni Esseibi...
...who also happens to be our June 2019 cover star brought to you by Marina Rinaldi.
“This is just the beginning. I want to do so much! Give TED talks on body confidence, start my own curvy fashion brand, host a TV show to help girls feel good about themselves….” says Ameni. Did someone say "a qween in action"?
But the body positivity doesn't stop there! No siree. Peep these other #wcw (women crush Wednesday) influencers coming forward to bravely share their stories with Cosmo. From struggles with anorexia to body shaming, these women have overcome countless adversarsies (can I just say, we stan) to embody strength and confidence. We're so living for it, ladies.

Body positivity month may be over, but the conversation has just begun. Embracing the skin we're in isn't and tbh, shouldn't, be only a month-long. It should be a lifelong journey. Because as these incredible influencers have noted, accepting yourself isn't easy, but nothing worth it ever is.
