Story Title: BIG, BOLD & BE-YOU-TI-FUL By PRINCESS ( MAY)

Line I got: is this what pretty feels like ?

Is this what pretty feels like ?

Just like In the 80’s or is it 90’s, oh what the heck who cares. Hey I’m snow and I’m a plus size 11 Grader at Africa’s college senior high, Comoros.

Baggy cloths are my thing, just looking for ways to hide my self from the world. Ever heard of Big, timid & ugly. The first of my kind, luckily for me I’m the biggest in my house, like I’ve absorbed all the family fat leaving me with all things big if you know what I mean.. Well this is my not so awesome story…

Yes I’m a biggy but I can’t say I’m bold. I wasn’t the top notch in class and good heavens neither am I the the last. It’s safe to say I am the biggest in my house and the not the dullest in my class ( I can’t be the queen of both worlds, how would I contain my self, let alone pass through the front door ).

Being big is really challenging for me, I get mocked, & bullied. Even my siblings make fun of me. I do the most chores but still I don’t lose any weight ( what an irony )

Life as snow peas isn’t a bed of roses, I hate my self and how I look. I can’t even go shopping with my family, basically it’s a waste of time. The things I would love to wear doesn’t come in large nor Extra large. In Comoros it’s like clothings are made specifically for the Mince/petit as the French man would say.

It was all challenging but truth be told, life got a lot better, thanks to my new neighbors. Funny story ( I was the least excited for their arrival, to me it was the arrival of a new set of mocking band) or so I thought.

Jack was in college, the guy of every girls dream on sakode’s Avenue. And my self exclusive Tho, I had bigger things to worry about. Mary to my surprise was a sweet girl, an 11th grader like my self and for the first time In my life someone wanted to be friends with me, me snow peas.

Mary was so kind, she helped me with my chores, homework and even took me shopping. Did you know there was a plus size only clothing store. She even took out time to help me pick out my outfits for school with her popular phrase ‘ Snow, your beautiful but you hide your self with your insecurities and judgments you don’t deserve’

It took me a while to adjust but I did, I let go a little for the first time In months or is it years. I got my hair done. ( ikr, imagine the transformation)

In a week I turned from fatty snow to just snow. It felt really good, I was confident with my self, comfortable with my body. I even got the attention of a few cuties in school but I wouldn’t spill … but yeah it all happened.

You

Sometimes, hiding isn’t always the best way out. We tend to hide ourselves from unnecessary / unworthy situations and forget that we are all made in the image and likeness of God.

Learn to appreciate yourself. Live your life to the fullest, it doesn’t matter if your big, small, tall or short.

I’ve never felt soo pretty and beautiful. And comfortable with my body.

Is this what pretty feels like ?
