I was recently asked by Seventeen Magazine to share my thoughts about my body for The Body Peace Project. What I like, what I would want to change etc. Asking this question can open up the door to lots of self criticism. Being a pro surfer I am in a bikini everyday and it’s really easy to judge yourself against others. I used to feel so insecure about my petite frame and muscles but now not only do embrace myself as I am but I realize that my body is strong and beautiful and enables me to perform as I need to as an athlete.
