I started a business Instagram in February 2019 as a way to express myself and my sense of style without the pressure of people judging me. In Hawaii, I was much taller and curvier than most of my peers, so I was bullied throughout high school. Once I moved to the mainland, I was ashamed of my chest size, so I wore crew neck t-shirts every day despite my profound love for fashion.
One day, I realized that I didn't choose my body and I should be able to express myself and dress just like everyone else my age. I didn't want to be constricted by societal body standards anymore, so I posted my first picture with some hashtags. I was so shocked and honored by the love and support I found on Instagram.
I have an amazing, supportive, and highly-engaged following that I greatly appreciate. My Instagram has been rapidly growing because of their work reposting and sharing my content. I am so excited every day that I get to turn this passion of mine into a successful business!
