Highlighting body positivity, BAFA is an empowering space, particularly for plus size women of color, for self love, self care, self motivation and all the other self building up ish you can think of. I want plus size women to be visually accepted and seen as more than a fetish or spectacle. We are people, we have feelings, emotions and insecurities. We also have confidence, sass, love and pride in who we are...human beings.

Buckle up and join me on this transforming journey of awareness, acceptance and love for all.
