Yo hey girl mag !
What’s your week been like?
My week has been pretty good so far. Busy with a surprise I have for all my supporters. Can’t wait to share with you angels.
So what gave you the idea to start drawing on your body and turn it into art?
Basically my whole family is into art so it’s always been apart of my life. I knew I wanted to do something different and art is so beautiful and it’s everywhere if you just look closely so mixing art with something people may perceive as an imperfection just creates a masterpiece.
How do maps make you feel?
I love maps, globes, whatever it is that has to do with maps I like. I have a map naturally on my body so it’s only fair.
Who is you favourite artist?
I can’t choose so I’ll just name some of them. Lucas David, Eromatica, Pink Bits, and I have so many more but I’m not going to bombard you with names.
What’s it like, being you?
I’ll tell you this. I am far from perfect and I have my good days and also bad. I go through the same struggles as anyone else.
If you were drawing the real world, how would you make it better?
It’s hard but doing what I do now is a way that I can contribute to making it better. To stop the self hatred for one another and to stop the bullying. For people to embrace every inch of themselves no matter what they look like.
How do you stay positive?
You always have a choice. I choose positivity because sometimes life throws obstacles at us that make us want to be negative but it’s our job to take that negativity and turn it into a positive. Choose happiness everyday and I promise you that you will have a brighter day that you won’t let any type of negativity take your shine away.
What’s it like having 149k followers on Instagram? congrats by the way xx
Thank you ! It’s crazy to me ! I can’t believe that many people follow me because I’m literally the most average girl you will ever meet. It’s surreal and I’m so grateful for each and every one of them because I wouldn’t be where I am today without their support.
What’s your favourite thing about Instagram?
I love all the body positivity that has been floating around and just being able to connect with people not only that but the amount of people that I can reach to help inspire them and help them in anyway that I can.
What’s your least favourite thing about Instagram?
The hate. Obviously with social media that’s just something that you have to deal with you just have to block it out. Don’t let the hate break you. Let it make you stronger.
How can people feel better about their bodies?
The only person that has to accept you and love you is you. The standards of beauty in our society are unattainable to most of us. These standards should not be your goal but instead the acceptance of the things that make you imperfectly beautiful should be your main focus. Self love is the best love always remember that.
What’s the craziest dream you had?
I honestly never remember my dreams, is that weird? I’ll try to remember but I always just remember bits and pieces from it.
Our next issue is about scenes, how would your perfect world smell?
My perfect world would smell like roses or coconuts because I’m obsessed with anything that has to do with coconuts. All I burn are coconut scented candles.
The funniest thing that’s happened to you?
This is going to sound like the most cliche thing in the world but one time I was at a friends birthday party and I had gone to the bathroom with my friend to fix her makeup and I ended walking out of the bathroom first. I guess I had a piece of toilet paper stuck to my boot but it never ripped from the actual roll so I kept walking like nothing happened so I had piles of toilet paper behind me and my friend tried helping me but she couldn’t stop laughing and when I realized I couldn’t either. I wasn’t embarrassed because it happens but it was hilarious.
Where would you go on a space ship?
I wouldn’t know where to go. I’d say surprise me and let it take me wherever. I mean it’s space so whoever you go would be too cool.
Ten words that describe you?
Honest, humble, understanding, positive, creative, confident, funny ( I’d like to think I am), trustworthy, realistic, and lively.
How do you feel about the fashion industry?
I think the fashion industry is really expanding now and all about embracing individuality and also all body types which is so important.
Chocolate or cheese?
I do not like chocolate but I do like hot chocolate, is that weird? Anyway I’m going to have to go with cheese.
Wine or beer?
Neither. I’m not a big fan of alcohol
If you had to make up an emoji for yourself what would it be?
It would definitely be some emoji hands with vitiligo on it. I think that would be awesome.
Fav music at the mo.?
Dua Lipa is my favorite right now.
big love HG xx
