Poznajcie dziewczynę, która ma jedynie metr wzrostu, ale stwierdziła, że nie przeszkodzi jej to w spełnianiu swoich marzeń.
Dru Presta cierpi na achondroplazję (karłowatość) i od najmłodszych lat była z tego powodu prześladowana i nękana przez swoich rówieśników. Karłowatość to wada genetyczna, do której jako społeczeństwo wciąż nie przywykliśmy. Jednak to nie zatrzymało dziewczyny przed spełnieniem swoich marzeń.
Dru postanowiła przeprowadzić się do LA i zacząć karierę modelki, wbrew wszelkim stereotypom i wymogom narzucanym przez branżę modową.
Chcę, żeby w świecie mody każdy miał równe szanse. Chcę widzieć na wybiegu dosłownie każdego – bez względu na to, czy porusza się na własnych nogach, o kulach, czy jeździ na wózku – mówi Dru.
Więcej zdjęć modelki znajdziecie na jej Instagramie. A Wy, co sądzicie na temat równości w świecie mody?

I’m so sorry for not posting as much this past week. ? I’ve really learned that life can’t always be black and white, yes and no answers this past month. Things take time to handle and deal with it. This industry takes a lot patience, and so does life. Not everyone can understand you and your ways, but that means you can SEE and UNDERSTAND things beyond what they can. So Slow down. Take a deep breathe. Remind yourself of your confidence, that yes your big butt has trouble fitting into things, and your body weight fluctuates when your don’t want it to but….. ❗️ITS OKAY❗️ YOUR GUYS SUPPORT HAS BEEN EVERYTHING. I LOVE YOU ALL ?
Happy birthday Eve to me!! ? 2️⃣2️⃣ I don't care, ??♀️this picture took a year for me to post because of how uncomfortable I felt back then. I knew my body and yes I loved it, but seeing it on camera and what I see in the mirror is completely different. How would they react? Especially a little person doing all this? This photo shoot started it all. ? A year before this photo was taken I barely knew the understanding of accepting yourself. I lost a lot of weight compared to then and now. I definitely know and can see a difference. But that's only growing up and going through life's roller coasters. I've lost friends this year, rekindled old ones, and made new ones. Who cares want everyone else wants, it's what YOU WANT. ??? The life I wanted has already begun, and it's just beginning. ???
Im my own #WCW ? I've been reluctant all morning about posting this. I don't want this photo just to be here for "entertainment". I am so incredibly proud of my curves that I had to do an appreciation post for myself. Im not the one to reveal my body on a lot posts. I like to feel empowered and in charge when I take my photos. This was a vulnerability test that I decided to take to be raw with you guys. It took me about 10 years to stop counting calories when I ate, or ate at all. I was a gymnasts so It was a practice to always make sure my muffin top didn't show in my suit. When I moved to Los Angeles I had so much stress and anxiety that it got the best of me and I would get sick every morning and night. I lost a ton of weight and it always fluctuated. I started doing new remedies, herbal care, yoga, hikes, and meditation. No one is perfect, sometimes I have to try a little extra to fit into jeans, sometimes my body doesn't compliment my outfit, but I make it work. I adjust the clothes to me, not adjusting me for the clothes. #beyou #notheretobeaverage #bossbabe #nojudgment #loveyourselffirst #dontalteryourself #disabilityawareness #littlepeopleawareness
She lives her life unbothered because she knows her worth. Answering questions for @revealmagofficial in the UK and I realized that although I'm the only little person in my family, I have had the long journey of surrounding my self with unconditional love and learned true acceptance of who I am. I'm still on the learning road just as everyone else, I take my days one day at time just like everyone else. Just feeling blessed ??? ?: @angelrod_films
Strong independent women can look at other beauty and not question there own. Growing up I always envied everyone else with being able to do everything I work 2X as hard for everyday. The mental abuse I put on myself was insane. Moving to LA I was given the freedom to be who I want with no judgement. A weight lifted off my shoulders after 16 years. Mental abuse is no joke. It can tear someone down to the lowest. You never know what someone is going through. Surround yourself with people and an environment that loves you unconditionally. Be kind. Be a bad ass boss. And love with no judgement. Show em what you can do ❤️ My photographer that always reminds me to be a bad ass b*tch: @maxdufner ??? #badassbossbitch #doyou #bodylove #mamiboss
