Thank you all for the birthday love last Friday! I had a good time with good people and given my state of mind just a couple of weeks prior, I was grateful to see in becoming 24.

I apologise for my absence across social media. But I have been feeling a little drained of late. As someone who has been promoting positive body image for 4 years it is becoming increasingly frustrating to see the cause being used to generate publicity and its message subsequently diluted.

Bopo is becoming all about followers. Likes. Shares. Attention. Yes, of course we want the message to spread far and wide. That's the whole point. But when it's diluted down to mean nothing more than the amount of followers someone has, there's a problem. 
Just because someone has endless amounts of followers doesn't mean that they know any more than someone with less.

I am so grateful to have so many amazing people following me. If you'd told me years ago that I'd have over 20k people supporting me on one platform I would never have believed you. But whether I have 2, 200 or 20k followers, my message will always be the same.

You have the basic human right to be proud of your body. Regardless of your age, gender, ethnicity, capability or size.
