When Gabourey Sibide burst onto the scene in her first acting role in the film Precious, nobody imagined she would continue on the career path in the film/TV industry. After all she’s not exactly what the industry calls ‘perfect’. She’s far from being a petite size zero or six like many actresses.
She breaks the mold on industry standards. In order to keep focused she has proven that it’s her confidence that keeps her going and the haters at bay. She is hit with several slams and virtual punches on social media about what she looks like.
The beauty of it is how she handles herself gracefully without bullying back. If only every woman could learn that you have to love yourself and embrace your own uniqueness. Once you do that your level of confidence will soar. There’s so much beauty and power in a confident woman.
