Plussize More Like My Size Ashley Graham TEDxBerkleeValencia
You are bold, you are brilliant,and you are beautiful. There is no other woman like you. You are capable. Back fat, I see you popping overmy bra today, but that's alright. I'm going to choose to love you. And thick thighs, you are just so sexy,you can't stop rubbing each other. (Laughter) That's alright. I'm going to keep you.
And cellulite, I havenot forgotten about you. I'm going to choose to love you even though you want to takeover my whole bottom half, but you're a part of me. I love you. It's true, honestly. I felt free once I realizedI was never going to fit the narrow mold that society wanted me to fit in.
I was never going to be perfect enough for an industry that definesperfection from the outside in. And that's OK. Rolls, curves, cellulite, all of it. I love every part of me. My name is Ashley Graham, and I'm a model and body activist. Over the last 15 years,
I've come to the conclusionthat there is no one perfect body. Because I, like you, possessa wonderfully unique and diverse physique. Now, the fashion industrymay persist to label me as quot;plus sizequot;, but I like to think of it as 'my size'. In fact, did you know that the plus size fashion industryactually starts at a US size 8é And it goes up to a US size 16. So basically what I'm saying isthat the majority of this room right now
is considered plus size. How does it make you feel to be labeledé I really feel like we needto start looking beyond the plus size model paradigms to what it actually meansto be a model in 2015. My journey begins in Lincoln, Nebraska. I was 12 years old and scouted in a mall. At 13, I signed witha major modeling agency
and was traveling the world. I was shooting big campaigns, and before I even graduated high school, I had been to multipledifferent countries. At 17, I graduated and moved to New York, and while most kids are going throughtheir selfdiscovery stage in college, my self discovery stagewas in the midst of catwalks, catalogs, and casting calls.
Can My Boyfriend Contract My Yeast Infection
Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher with another frequently asked question. Can my boyfriend contract my yeast infectioné He certainly can. I've covered this in a previousfrequently asked question. If you are female and have a vaginal yeast infection, thereis certainly a bigger chance that your boyfriend or partner may contract this. While thrushis not necessarily an STD or a sexually transmitted disease, it can be transferred through sexualcontact, oral sexual contact, for example. So if you are a female and do have a partnerand are concerned, make sure that you clear
your thrush. At least get it diagnosed tomake sure it's not bacterial vaginosis. It's really good to try and understand what you'redealing with, so you'll be in a better position to eradicate it. Bacterial vaginosis is very common. I've coveredthat in a previous FAQ as well. But, yes, you can pass a yeast infection on to yourboyfriend and he, in turn, can pass it back to you. Something I call pass the parcel.So it's good to get on top of your vaginal infection sooner rather than later. So I hope that covers that question quitewell. Thank you.
