hawn Pelofsky thank you for supporting our Kickstarter Campaign.

1. How have you struggled in the past to appreciate or love your body and how have you overcome that struggle?

As a woman living in Los Angeles, the struggle is real. You can’t ignore the pressure to be thin and perfect. Luckily for me, I was born with a sense of humor. Not only does that help be more confident, it helps me not to take my body image so seriously. Hell, I wait for Girl Scout Cookie Season to come around just like everyone else. The outside is just an exterior, but it’s my heart and drive that makes me beautiful.

2. What do you love most about your body?

I really love my skin (thanks to my mother, Ginger), my curves, and my broken nose - which one day may land me the role of a young Barbra Streisand.

3. What message do you have for other women who struggle to appreciate and love their bodies?

Stop watching the Kardashians.

4. Why do you support SMV?

SMV promotes body positivity. Young girls are easily influenced these days, especially with social media. It’s nice to see women embracing themselves. Beauty resides in all types. Now give yourself a hug.
