“So much to be thankful for really! I was bestowed with the Trailblazer Award for “Ladies Who Inspire” on Sunday at the ELOYs. I had NO idea that was in the works and let’s just say it was an interesting evening. Thank you @tewaonasanya thank you @exquisitemagazinenig thank you @ifeomawilliams @toyosiphillips @debolalagos and @themcernestcompany Making a difference in how women see themselves means the world to me. Changing perceptions and creating an ecosystem of “alternatives”, integrating and unifying… a world where EVERY body enjoys the right to be beautiful and fitting into society’s standard of beauty is a thing of the past. It’s not inventing a cure for cancer or advancing technology, it’s simply telling many that they matter and within them lies the capacity to do more and be more ? #aboutthatcurvylife #womanofsubstance #purposedrivenlife #Queen
