Danah and I are still overwhelmed with happiness for all the great opportunities God has been giving us. Though we've always had big dreams for ourselves as advocates, watching it all unfold right before our eyes brings us so much excitement and joy! We've always believed this advocacy will take us places, but it's still so surprising now that we're actually experiencing it!
We've never doubted what we stand for, although we have been given talks by our own family and colleagues (back when I was working for a corporation) that being an advocate isn't enough to live and survive in this world. But you see, I am passionate about what we do. I know deep in my heart that this calling, to show women their real beauty and worth, is something beyond us—it's one that has been crafted by our Maker intricately in our souls as our purpose on earth—and that's what makes us continue to fight for body acceptance in this country. Sure, we have struggles financially sometimes as free lancers and advocates, but knowing that we make such a huge impact in women's lives is truly an extraordinary fulfilment no amount of money can buy.
As we continue to be guest judges of FHHM, we really hope that the viewers and contestants listen to our comments and take it to heart, because what we say are things that matter, things that can slowly strike a chord in the souls of Filipinos to make them eventually fully realize that THERE IS BEAUTY IN DIVERSITY and HEALTH AT EVERY SIZE. We agreed to be on the show to bravely speak our minds and slowly educate the masses when it comes to demolishing fat discrimination. We also hope that the girls who join the contest get rid of the mentality that the only way to be funny or pleasing to the masses is to make a mockery out of their own selves. Fat girls have so much to offer. Let's make the most out of FHHM by showing its viewers that big girls are beautiful not only for their faces, but as a whole person—body, personality, talent, character, and intelligence included.
Again, we'll never ever stop being grateful to every one of you who believed in us, who showed us your support from day one, and who, until today, consistently cheers us on as we venture on after one great endeavor to the next.
From the bottom of our big, fat hearts, WE THANK YOU, AND WE LOVE ALL OF YOU DEARLY. :)
