''My mother told me she looked like me when she was young. My father is tall. My brothers look like giants,'' she said.
When asked whether she's experienced body-shaming, Nyamekye responded in the affirmative yes, as she recalled an unpleasant experience with the preacher.
''There was this pastor; he'll chase me in the church because I'm too big ... Sometimes when you pick a 'trotro' (local minibus) and the person you're sitting behind makes you feel you've occupied the entire space - it's so uncomfortable,'' she said.
