Sometimes you come across people that stand out. By what they say, the message they convey and what they stand for. Marianne Nykjaer, plus-size model, sports enthusiast and promoter of diversity and body acceptance, is such a fine specimen. On my bare knees I therefore begged Marianne to please come guest blog at Great Body & Skin. And she said yes! Today she introduces herself to you:
[dropcap]Bonjour![/dropcap] For the next couple of months, I’ll be guest blogging (is that a verb?) here at Great Body & Skin. Before I get started I thought it would be fun to introduce myself and get to know you guys a little bit as well!
I love all women in all shapes and sizes, from zero to supersize.
Plus-size model & blogger
I’m a fashion lover, (plus-size) model and blogger. I mainly blog about diversity in the fashion world and body acceptance. We live in a world where industries literally make billions of dollars on women’s insecurities. At one point I decided I didn’t want to play that game anymore. I love all women in all shapes and sizes, from zero to supersize! Body negativity is something that doesn’t excists in my dictionary.
Body Acceptance & Confidence
Although I’m quite into sports and very passionate about (healthy) food, my main focus as far as health is concerned is mostly mentally instead of physically. The next couple of months, I will be blogging about topics like loving the skin you’re in, HAES (health at every size), body acceptance, news from the fashion world, plus-size modeling, diversity, body shaming, confidence and the role of media in our society.
I’m super excited, and I can’t wait to hear your comments and feedback!
