5 Questions with Julia Samersova

5 Questions with Julia Samersova

“‘Body positivity is freedom from suffocating societal messages that keep people in a perpetual struggle with their bodies.’

I f#&*ing love that! Personally, learning to truly LOVE my body took many, many, many years! It is a work in progress. I am now in my early 40s and have given birth to three humans. I have never felt stronger or sexier in my entire life!”

-Julia Samersova

I am enough.

I am enough.

“I force myself to wake up each day and reclaim my power. I stare down my ED each morning, announcing to it, and to myself, that I will not be controlled. I will not be consumed. I will choose to stand up and fight.” - Meredith Essalat

You are entirely up to you.

“The night I was assaulted, I lost control over my body and my sense of self. I spent the next few years desperately trying to regain control, but the trauma and denial of the incident left me fumbling to put the pieces back together.”

10 Years Is A Long Time

10 Years Is A Long Time

10 years is a long time. I feel like a totally different person than the girl I was 10 years ago. So much has happened and so much has changed. How I view the world has evolved from what it was 10 years ago—along with my goals, priorities, opinions, fears, and dreams. Ten years holds a lot of missed experiences. Ten years is a long time to be gone.

Self-worth and confidence is more than being "skinny"

Self-worth and confidence is more than being "skinny"

“Looking back, I wish I could tell my younger self that her self-worth and confidence is more than being "skinny" and that there are healthier ways to overcome mental pain. It's about being strong, feeling well, and feeling comfortable in your own body, which is what I eventually found through exercise. It's about living your passions and being proud of your accomplishments.”
