Vulnerability takes courage. . . . Credit to @samortizphoto : Sometimes I ask myself, “does this feel too vulnerable?” And if it does? I try to do it. ✨ Posting pictures like these is one of those things.. . . . #MeMyBodyAndLove #BodyPeace #selflove #FatWomenOfColor #bodyconfidence #bodyimageissues #bodyrelationship #vulnerabilityisstrength #vulnerabilityisbeautiful #WOC #womenofcolor #latinx #latinamas #intersectionalfeminism #browngirlmagic #fatgirlmagic #fatwomen #fullfigured #fatacceptance #fatpositive

“My name is MahMah. Pronounced ma-ma. Like mother but without any children”. This is the line I use every time I try and explain how to say my name. I hated my name for a very long time. I didn’t understand why my family would name their daughter something so unusual? I was constantly teased at school. I came up with a list of names that I would rather have and I decided that when I turned 18, I would legally change my name. I’m 23 years old now and I am still MahMah. I would NEVER change my name. My name holds great importance in the Cook Islands. I have been using the alias name “Bella” for a very long time, particularly at coffee shops or takeaway joints because it was always so embracing when they called out “MahMah” and fucked it up so bad. After the brutal terrorist attacks that occurred on the 15th of March, I decided I would never use my alias name again. I decided that I would not change my name for the convince of other people. If we aren’t exposed to a diverse range of people and the names that they hold, how will we ever develop? I am not an inconvenience. I will continue to use my real name on a daily basis in public spaces because that is my right. Please make the effort to learn people’s names and their preferred pronunciation and pronouns ✨ I will do the same 🙂
