Bondy shares her own experience with issues like self-acceptance and self-love on her Facebook page to encourage women who are in the same position she once was. She posted:
“.. I will no longer apologize for my body, for my size and for who I am. I stand in my power!… ”
The featured video is a part of the #iwontcompromisemovement, a campaign run by Penningtons Blog in order to inspire women to work towards accepting themselves and doing what they love. This campaign advocates for taking steps to improve one’s quality of life without worrying too much about other people’s judgements.
