- Jessica Larni, a Ghanaian model has shared some revealing photos against body and ''fat'' shaming
- The actress took to Instagram to amplify the challenges women with thicker thighs experience in the modeling industry
- Jessica Larni revealed that she has ''tried to break that barrier''
Ghanaian actress and model, Jessica Larni, has taken to her Instagram handle to amplify the social stigma of obesity and anti-fat bias while stating that''a woman’s body is beautiful in its own way''.
Jessica Larny indicated that she never understood why women with thicker bodies and thighs have not been projected as definitions of beauty but are ''considered fat''.
The Ghanaian model shared a post on Instagram in an attempt to amplify and address the problem of body shaming, fueled by the cultural and entertainment machineries which for years have defined beauty as either being gracefully slender or slim.
Commercials on television and currently online, particularly on social media feature women with slender body shapes with less and less women with thinker bodies.
Jessica highlighted the problem of anti-fat stigma in the modelling space while indicating that she has made attempts to ''break that barrier''.
The thick and proud model shared adorable photos of herself on Instagram along with captions which read: ''I believe every woman's body is beautiful in its own way. I have never understood that just because a woman has thick thighs, she is considered fat.''
''For so long, I've been around in the modeling world and have tried to break that barrier. But I think now it's turning around. I got scouted for modeling on the street. I'm such a tomboy - still am. I just never thought about modeling before, but I thought, 'Ooh, interesting, similar world, perhaps it's a way into something.' In modeling, I had to learn to like myself, to love myself, to feel comfortable,'' Jessica further stated.
In other stories, while the latest video of the Beposo Senior High School female student has ignited issues of morality and discipline in our high schools, some Ghanaians have also said this was simply a ''fun time gone bad''.
Some have equally bashed her while calling on the school's leadership to ''reprimand'' her. However, others have also urged Ghanaians to be measured in their criticisms of the teenager considering that people have committed suicide over less.
The female student from Beposo Seniro High School left some Ghanaians shocked when she stripped partly naked while twerking to Medikal’s Wrowroho.
