Meet Kerryann, a vibrant and beautiful woman full of life, with a kindness and sincerity I felt immediately upon meeting her.
When I initially asked Kerryann why she wanted to take part in this body image photoshoot, she told me, "mental health is important. I've been body shamed a lot in my life, it's time to love the skin I'm in."
What a great attitude!
This is Kerryann's story.
Tell us a bit about yourself
I am 50 and proud. A small business owner of eight years caretaking prestige holiday accommodation alongside my partner Aaron. We are also foster carers of Aaron's niece Tahlia. I have a 30 year old career minded daughter Jessica, who resides on the Gold Coast :)
Do you have any insecurities about your body?
Being raised in a Dutch home we were taught never to be ashamed of our bodies, so I was lucky that I never suffered body image issues at home :)
However, growing up at school I was bullied. Being a late bloomer I had other girls my age sniggering. It was only then I started to feel awkward about my undeveloped body.
