My Story...

I was always the chubby kid growing up. My brother and sister were both thin, popular and athletic, where I was chubby, nerdy and clumbsy. This photo is my basketball photo for the YMCA basketball team I was on, and it’s actually the best picture I ever took between the ages of 10-14! Middle school almost killed me!! I can’t even walk into my nieces school without feeling like I’m going to puke! Thank God I had a growth spurt my freshman year in highschool and got contacts. I’m happy I grew up awkward though, even though I don’t get made fun of for how I look now, I’ll never forget the way it made me feel when I did and I never want to make anyone feel bad about being overweight or awkward.
