Posted on 03 July 2017
We're back to introduce our new queen for our "QUEEN OF THE WEEK" segment on the Neon Moon blog.
Each week we will be blessing you with a different queen who is making waves in the feminist world and body positive community with 5 questions about her inspirations and dreams to advice.
This week, our Queen of the Week is the incredible body positive activist Halle. Halle created her Instagram recently and has gone viral since due to her honesty when telling her followers about her story to recovery and self-love journey. Her selfies showing how your body can look different in certain lighting and poses have gone viral and receive an influx of likes and comments supporting her journey, in which she states she's proud to be accepting of her body. Halle emphasises the importance of being kind to your body.
From her inspiring monologues to her self confidence, we absolutely love Halle's contribution to the body positive and recovery community.
Are you inspired? Read on for 5 questions with the bo-po warrior Halle. Keep doin' you Halle, we love you!
1. What or who inspires you?
My grandmother. She lived an amazing life and worked hard for every second of it. The Body Positive Community. I have met so many incredible people and met friends for life here! These people have been a huge part of my recovery, they've changed me as a person and showed me that there is a massive amount of support in this world and I am not alone. People who are fighting for change & equality. People who are not afraid to be themselves. People who live unapologetically have inspired me to do the same. I could name specific people but the list would literally be never ending :)
2. What's the first thing you would buy if you won £1 million?
Truthfully, at the moment, a trip to The UK to visit my babes Liv (@selfloveliv), Milly (@selfloveclubb) & Kate (@kateshappinessjourney). They've become my best friends & I hope to one day eat pizza and have a slumber party with them. (And maybe meet Megan (@bodyposipanda) while I'm there!)
3. What's a piece of advice you would give to your younger self?
Dear tiny Halle, It's going to be okay. It's not your fault. Don't wait to ask for help, you will not be a burden & no one is going to judge you. There are people who DO love you & support you. You will find them one day & life will be less hard then. Your body is beautiful no matter what you think. No matter how much you dislike the girl you see in the mirror. You are perfect just as you are. Fight through the hard times to come, you will make it. You will come out on top. You are stronger than you think and I love you.
4. What is the big dream for Halle?
World Peace. Haha. But the big dream, whether it is achievable or not, is to be a professional advocate for body positivity, eating disorder awareness, self love & body acceptance. By that I mean, travelling the world & speaking to people everywhere about my story & spreading hope. Educating the everyone on the importance of seeking help & fighting through treatment to reach recovery. That recovery is worth it. That life is worth recovery. My dream is to hopefully one day have everyone know that they are okay as they are. They are perfect without changing anything. That love always wins & you are allowed to live aloud.
