I recently came across her story.
I wept when I read about the horrible video and again when she said how she used it to turn her life around. It is people like this who should be celebrated not vacuous celebs. An inspiration to me as someone who has been insecure about their appearance all my life and no doubt to others too.

Yes, I heard about her before. Tremendous inner strength.

What an amazing person. She deserves all the happiness she could fit in to her life now.

OP do you want to talk about why you have issues with your appearance?

Thanks. Let's just say I had acne in my teens and while it only lasted 2 years I have never been confident since. Really though this young woman is an inspiration. I hope she finds all she is looking for from life.
