The 32-year old woman, identified as Annette Richmond, an author and beautician, ventured into the project when she understood that there was a genuine lack of fat ladies in travel and tourism firms.
She swung to a hashtag to help create awareness, with the help of several other Social Media users who have since joined the pattern under the hashtag #FatGirlsTraveling in their posts.
Her online presence has since grown to a community — one where individuals can meet up to vent and share their experiences.
She began sharing her own elegant photos on Instagram,and soon after, other women began using the tag as well.
Currently, close to a thousand women have submitted photos of their travel experiences.
In a recent interview, Annette uncovered that body size stigmatization is rife in Asian nations, making reference to her 2016 trip to China and Thailand.
