Guest contribution by Aisha Mansaray – I grew up as a brown-skinned kiddo with a huge bush of brown, curly hair and freckles on my nose. If you mix Dutch and African, you get a fairly tall girl, with naturally firm hips, legs, and arms. This is not something to be ashamed about at all, but still I was by the time I hit puberty.
Guest contribution by Lianne — I don’t have the best body in the world, nor the most logically proportioned one. And yes, sometimes I think “ugh” and “can u not.” But I love it anyway.
