  1. So I saw your special in MTV’s TrueLife. I greatly support your cause! I, myself have first hand experienced being larger than what our culture calls average. I never have and never will fit into the thin mold society places on “beauty”. I amend you for being bold in this up and coming societal awareness. Now more than ever our society and culture should be realising “our” average size, as the majority of the population does not “fit” into the norm of being “beautiful”. I am so very proud to have seen you accomplish “The Body Beautiful Project” on your campus! This moevment is so very important to bring to light. Everyone should have the respect as the next and feel beautiful being as who there are! Just wanted to give a shout out in full support to everyBODY’s beautiful-ness! Best wishes in continued strides in an equality amonst everyBODY!

  2. Hi.My name’s Kailee and I’m from Lake Arthur,Louisiana. I watched your episode on true life and I loved the ‘body beautiful group you started at your college.I’m wanting to start something similiar to that at my high school.Not just for girls who are over weight, but for any girl who feels insecure in her own skin. I believe that every girl deserves to be called beautiful and should think they are beautiful. So,if you are reading this and have time please email me at kajunduck152@gmail.com. Or if you have a facebook send me a message at Kailee Courts.
    You have no idea how much your help would be appreciated.Thank you(:
