2017 has many scrapping resolutions and declaring “New Year, Same Me!”.
One video that was released this week encourages women to instead make a New Year’s resolution to embrace themselves just the way they are.
A group of women from the plus size community in Canada united together to create their own version of Buzzfeed’s viral video, “Things Plus Size Girls Can’t Do“.
The group, which includes bloggers, models, artists and activists, does a wonderful job of creating scenes that defy each stereotype, one by one.
The video features:
Ashley Sharman, Model
Caterina Moda, Model
Stefanie Augusteijn, Blogger, Photographer and Boutique Owner
Steff Ivory Conover, Singler, Model and Performer
Gail Thompson, Blogger, Fab Four Fashion
Thera Warren, Blogger
Sasha Ruddock, Blogger and Designer
Garcia Lewin, Blogger and Designer
May Touma, Blogger
Annika Reid, Blogger and Advocate
Belle Jumelles, Performer and Producer
Rachel Marcus, Model and Advocate
Sarah Taylor, Model and Blogger
