A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting and working with one heck of an amazing woman! Kailyn Lowry, MTV’s Teen Mom 2 reality star, helped kick off the Beauty is Sizeless campaign by taking a stand and baring it all for the camera. Her confidence is sure to inspire many!
So what does Kail have to say about her involvement with the Beauty is Sizeless Campaign? Her interview may surprise you!
Why is the Beauty is Sizeless Campaign important to you?
Kail: “Beauty is Sizeless is important to me because I have struggled with my weight my whole life. Girls really need to let this message soak in! It’s so important!”
What does the campaign mean to you?
Kail: “The campaign reinforces the fact that not everyone is going to be model size. Beauty is in everyone… EVERYONE!”
When you’re down, what is your favorite song listen to?
Kail: “I love the song, “Nobody Ever Told You,” by Carrie Underwood. (Listen Here) Even my two-year-old knows it’s my favorite song! The lyrics are self explanatory and actually, they fit perfectly with the campaign.”
What is your view on weight related to a person’s beauty? Have you struggled with weight yourself?
Kail: “Beauty is sizeless, but healthy is beauty too! As long as we’re healthy and comfortable in our own skin, nothing else matters. I’ve always struggled with my weight. I don’t think I’ve ever met someone who has crazy fluctuating weight like mine. My mom called me ‘Chunky Monkey’ growing up… I didn’t think it was funny then, and I definitely don’t now, either.”
What is your favorite quote to live by?
Kail: “Life it too short to stress… & Beauty IS sizeless of course. ) I think people in society have become so consumed in the lives of others that we’re not focusing enough on ourselves, our OWN bodies, our OWN lives. We need to stop trying so hard to fit in and be the size that everyone else expects us to be. It’s too stressful living like that.”
Who is one celebrity you would love to meet?
Kail: “There are so many! But I love Demi Lovato. She’s about my age and she’s been through weight issues while being in the public eye… but she’s still pushing through!”
If there was one thing you wish you could tell everyone, what would it be?
Kail: “Focus on YOU! Make yourself happy and love yourself! People will catch on. ”
Do you have any other causes you advocate for?
Kail: “I love the NOH8 campaign! I’ve done two photo shoots with Adam and Jeff, they are awesome! I’ve also done something with Pasion, an organization dedicated to cancer patients, survivors and their families.”
Joining us at the photo session was her adorable son Isaac, her best friend, GiGi, and Javi’s brother, Sal.
Kailyn has become an integral participant in the Beauty is Sizeless Campaign, and we hope to keep working with such an amazing individual! More photos and features coming soon!
