“Regardless of how much melanin we have, or how many pimples, or how curly or straight our hair is, it’s really about what we have inside of us that makes us who we are. Sometimes I’ll look at myself and be like dang girl you got a lot of stretch marks. But then I’m like, that’s just the road map of my strength.” People Magazine

“”Everyone has dealt with their share of random negative comments. It all comes down to how you handle it. For me, it’s about having constructive conversations instead of ignoring the issue. I found a lot of success in saying: Hey,  wondering why you feel that way? And this is how I feel.”  Seventeen Magazine

Tiffany Haddish

“Kids would tease me all the time. They’d say I got flies on me and I smell like onions. There was one nickname that stuck: Dirty Ass Unicorn. I had a wart on my forehead. It was spiky and big and I could not hide it. All I could do was hurt myself. I would take scissors and try to cut off my horn. it would bleed down my face. Hurting myself made them stop hurting me and care about me. Finally I went to a doctor and they burn that s–t off.”  People Magazine

Demi Lovato

“Getting in the gym makes me feel the best I possibly can, so I make sure I get that in. It’s all about finding your strength, feeling comfortable in your own skin. I never thought I’d be in such a great place. That’s the beauty of working on yourself and taking care of yourself. You get to places where you never thought you’d be.”  People Magazine

 

Barbra Streisand

 

“I was an ugly duckling and a loner. I was known as the kid who had a good voice and no father. My mother laughed at my ambition. She never hugged me or said words like, ‘I love you.’ I never would have ended up doing what I’m doing. I owe her my career. I was always trying to prove to her that I was worthy of being somebody. If you don’t feel loved as a child, you spend your life trying to get that love. People who have two parents who love them are very lucky. They are not left with a hole to fill. You have to fill it with yourself, eventually.” CLOSER

Christina Aguilera

my body.” US Magazine

“It’s important to recognize your own self-destructive behavior and be honest about it.
You’re only hurting yourself or losing out on your truth and happiness. I’m not afraid to face
my own personal stuff. It’s so important to dig it up and figure it out and move on.”  Cosmo Girl

“I like my body when I have curves. We all come indifferent shapes and sizes, and this is
something to celebrate.”  Parade Magazine
