Model Ashley Graham's TED Talk Might Be The Most Inspiring Body Positive Message Ever

June 03, 2015 2 min read

Ashley Graham, categorized in the modelling world as plus sized, just gave a TED Talk in Valencia, Spain titled  “Plus-size? More Like My Size!” and it is a total testament to self love. “You are bold, you are brilliant and you are beautiful,” she begins, talking to herself in a full-length mirror. “There is no other woman like you. You are capable. Back fat? I see you popping over my bra today, but that’s alright I’m going to choose to love you. And think thighs? You are just so sexy you can’t stop rubbing each other. That’s alright. I’m going to keep you. And cellulite? I have not forgotten about you. I’m going to choose to love you even though you want to take over my whole bottom half. You’re a part of me and I love you.” Graham started modelling at 13 and her journey to self acceptance was long and a difficult one. “We need to work together to redefine the global vision of beauty, and it starts with becoming your own role model,” Graham implores us. “It is critical that men and women create a body positive environment. Uplift the important women in your life! Create a safe space for them to express their body and their beauty for who they are, not because of who they’re not. Be you. Be real. Be authentic. Be your favorite kind of woman. Don’t let anyone else take that job. And remember, this is the generation of body diversity. The current is changing.” This woman speaks the truth! Check out Graham's TED Talk below. It is about 10 minutes long but it may end up being the most productive 10 minutes of your day. Feed the revolution! https://youtu.be/xAgawjzimjc
