“Before burlesque I was terrified of people thinking my body is gross or weird. Now I realise I’m a sexy woman who shouldn’t feel bad about herself.
I am not afraid to show off my curves, cellulite, fat rolls, and all. It’s mine and I rock it.”
“I felt like the ‘real me’ was chained somewhere inside my body, Burlesque gives you the opportunity to free yourself. If want to show your scars and traumas, you can do that.
Burlesque taught me how to accept myself.”
“I censored myself to be accepted as ‘normal’. I fooled everyone, even myself. I realised how much I’ve hidden away for years and that I have nothing to be ashamed of. I showed myself and my doctors that nothing can stop me.”
