Earlier this year, I flew cross-country for the first time during the pandemic to SEE MY BABY SISTER GRADUATE WITH HER MBA.
I was a first-gen college student, and not only has my sister surpassed me in education, she did it while working full time as a single mom. I’m so proud of her I could burst. She’s incredible.
Not being able to take my good camera on this trip, I had to do everything with my smartphone. It was a bit limiting, and you can tell in the photo quality. I’m so glad I got to capture her on this day, though. The memories are what matter.

Every Monday, I send out my Body Liberation Guide, a thoughtful email jam-packed with resources on body liberation, weight stigma, body image and more. And it’s free. Let’s change the world together.
