Megan Kimberling is a Plus Model and all-around badass. There are no words that can amount to how she excels at being unapologetically herself. We met her randomly in Venice Beach one day while she was doing a shoot. At the point in time, the project was still just an idea and it’s a bit of a full-circle moment seeing her be a part of it as well as support it so much. Here’s part of her story about how she’s come to be comfortable in her own, flawless, skin.
The first thing I wanted to be growing up was a rodeo queen and I always knew that if I wanted to be that, I had to be skinny. It came from my community saying that if I wanted to be the pretty person, I had to be skinny.
Skinny was pretty. Thin was pretty and I was always told that I did this or that, that I’d be prettier
I was always made to feel that I could be prettier
I spent a lot of years internalizing those comments about my weight and what I looked like.
