I'm an m.bassador because

One of the effects of constant bullying and ostracization in primary school all through High School due to both my sexual identity and my refusal to gender conform was a deep self loathing of myself that lingers to this day. One of the ways this self loathing manifested itself was through overeating and weight gain during this period, after High School I became anorexic which lingered to my early 30’s. It is not until this past summer, that I have felt empowered enough to love my body and it is the first time in 15 years that I don’t shave my body hair off.
Ultimately, the people I hope this reaches are those still struggling with these issues; to know, that you can love yourself and find your true nature, whatever that looks like to you.
