I became obsessed with my appearance at a young age. I saw a warped reflection of myself whenever I looked in a mirror, and for years I struggled with depression, anxiety, and, most of all, a negative body image. When I turned 18 my current agency contacted me for representation. They stand for dismantling beauty standards, combatting tokenism, and supporting healthy lifestyles for their models. Today, I’m still repairing a distorted mental picture of myself and breaking negative thought patterns, and I’m improving, step by step.
Making sauerkraut is deceptively easy, so I implore you to try it out for yourself. Cabbage is the star of the show in this dish, and quite rightly so: it is packed with natural isothiocyanate compounds, vitamin C, and antioxidants. Make a bunch and eat it frequently, alone or as an accompaniment to anything you wish. Your body will thank you!
