She is heard talking about waking up every morning and loving the person that she has gradually become.
She even shared a lengthy post about how she feels beautiful and conformable in her skin:
“On a journey and it’s a beautiful one.
Showing my skin doesn’t take away my intelligence or industriousness.
Doing doesn’t make me a shame to myself, my family or community.
It doesn’t give permission to you to verbally abuse me or to treat unfairly or with disrespect.
I don’t need you to constantly remind me of my relapses or to forever label my actions as symptoms of my diagnosis.
I lived a long life ashamed of my traits and it has retarded my progress because at every stage I want to impress someone to fit in but fitting in is not for me.
I believe I have a niche to fill and will exactly that with or without your support.”
