Quién es Joann van den Herik y su lucha por las tallas grandes

Joann van den Herik es nada menos que una chica de 18 años que acaba de firmar un contrato con una gran agencia de modas… Y quien es nada menos que la prima holandesa de Gigi y Bella Hadid.

I was so shocked today when I saw all those articles about me: Vogue, Elle, Daily Mail, Huffington Post, and so much more 😱 I couldn’t believe that would ever happen to me, so first of all: thank you all so much for reading those articles and supporting me and welcome to my life 🙂 I loved all your sweet messages and try to respond to everything! I will keep being myself and being real and honest with you all. Starting with this picture: I’m always really insecure about my lips. I don’t have big lips, but all the instagram girls / models have them. It makes me so insecure especially when I’m smiling! I also get this white thin layer on my lips when I don’t drink enough water on one day, but I didn’t want to edit it because I wanted to show you guys I have my flaws too. I’m not perfect nor will I ever be perfect. Drink enough water guys so you don’t get white lips 😂🤦🏻‍♀️ I hope I will inspire you all to love and accept yourselves, just like I do and still trying to do ❤️ #LoveYourself #ThankYou #EmbraceYourCurves photographed by @rachelkeijzerphotography

Pero técnicamente no hace competencia directa a sus parientes, ya que ella trabajará con International Model Managment and Maxime Models, que se enfocan en las tallas grandes. Con este nuevo trabajo, ella busca que todas las mujeres amen su cuerpo de la forma que es, y quiere desmitificar la famosa etiqueta de “mujer real”, ya que son muchas las tallas y formas que tenemos alrededor del mundo.

I was afraid to post this picture and that’s why I did post it. I could’ve cropped it so you wouldn’t see any fat, but I didn’t. I wanted to show you guys that I’m imperfect too. I have fatrolls, I have stretch marks. It’s so easy to look in the mirror and feel disgusted by the things you don’t like, but I don’t want to do that anymore. I don’t wanna hide my “ugly” side, I want to show it more often, because I’ve accepted it. I love my body. Guys and girls, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have a sixpack, or a size zero. You’re just as beautiful as everyone. Don’t try to compare or compete with others, your body is a temple which you should care and love for. Don’t let your mind bully your body. Nowadays, people make it feel like it’s a shame to be fat and that if you’re not a size 0, you shouldn’t show your body. F* them!!! Show your body, love your body, embrace your body no matter what size you are. Your body loves YOU, so love it back ❤️ #CelebrateMySize #LoveYourBody #EmbraceYourCurves photo by @rachelkeijzerphotography

A través de su Instagram con el #EmbraceYourCurves ha buscado llevar este mensaje, explicando que lo que ha dejado atras son sus inseguridades para mejorar su vida, salud y mente, sumándose así a la campaña de varias modelos de tallas más grandes que buscan dejar los estándares de lado para que cada una pueda sentirse libre y SEGURA de sí misma. Sólo amor y respeto <3
