Hiya! My name’s Emily Crosby, a twenty one year old blogger from Essex, England.
While attending sixth form in 2016, I began to feel extremely insecure about my body and suffered from bouts of depression and anxiety. As a result, I missed a lot of the last year of my studies. With lots of time spent at home sitting at home in bed, I was lacking in motivation. Therefore, I needed a project to work on to get me back on track. That’s why I started this blog!
It was a way to express how I was feeling and connect with others who felt the same way. I later started my Instagram account of the same name to share all the things I enjoy doing.
Over the last three years, my blog and social media channels have given me a chance to express my thoughts and build my personal confidence.
In particular, I was inspired by other plus size models/bloggers to start posting more of my style. It taught me to love my body and embrace the way I look.
Now that I am in a better place, my personal goal is to provide a positive and confident role model for young women. There are plenty of girls growing up with self-esteem and body confidence issues nowadays. Yet they don’t have role models who teach them to love their bodies as they are! I want to be that role model as this is what I would have needed in high school.
