Eat the Rules with Summer Innanen
I’m joined by Leah V, author of Unashamed: Musings of a Fat, Black, Muslim. We talk about her incredible story of how she battled an eating disorder, mental illness, and body shame to own who she is unapologetically and become an international plus-size Hijabi model, award-winning author and body-positive activist. We also talk about her thoughts on NYFW and her experiences dating while fat.
