Switch TV presenter Joyce Maina encouraged her fans and followers a few hours ago with a confident post she made re-affirming body positivity among women.
In her rallying cry to women, she used herself as an example telling Kenyans that she might have ended her life had she not been secure in her own self.
She added that as a person in the limelight it hadn't been easy for her as she had been trolled repeatedly. She finished off by urging parents to teach their daughters to be love themselves.
Read her lovely message below;
"Facts!! There’s no winning. Being a woman is hard enough, and is made harder by your unsolicited opinion. Especially when it comes from other women!! So sad. Thank God my self-esteem is in check, I’d never survive this industry if it wasn’t. I’d have probably ended my life, or tried to cause of the amount of times I’ve been trolled. First I was too skinny, now I have too much cellulite 🤦🏾♀️Anyway, moral of the story is? Teach your daughters self-confidence and self-love. It’s the only way to get through life as the female species. DROP A COMMENT IF YOU’VE BEEN BODY-SHAMED. This is a safe space.#letstalkaboutit #bodypositivity #bodypositive #nobodyshaming #loveyourself #loveyourbody #goodvibesonly."
Have you faced body-shaming online and what did you do about it?
