She Was Abused Several Times But She Didn't Let It Stop Her

This is a story about a woman who has been abused and insulted several times because of her look and body shape but she didn't give up and she became one of the best actresses in Hollywood - receiving several international awards for her role in different movies

Gabourey Sidibe was born in New York into a poor family. Her father, Ibnou Sidibe was a taxi driver from Kenya.

She lived with her aunt while growing up. She dropped out of school but worked as a receptionist for several years before an opportunity came and she went into acting. She was told by one of the directors to quit because people with her shape were not expected to act movies.

Looking at her photos you will agree with me that she is very fat and looks darker - of course that is the way God Created her but her look has made her go through a lot of pains. She was always abused, tainted and insulted by others when she was young.

Even as an actress today she still gets a lot insults from people on social media but she does not allow any of that to stop her. Hear what she said in an interview :

" I'm tired of being told I am less than someone else. I am not. I am amazing."

God Created all of us in different ways. Some people are naturally fat, some are slim while others are just normal.

No matter how people look we should never body-shame them because they didn't create themselves and so we should never make anybody feel inferior.

Perhaps you feel bad about the way you look now. Don't allow it stop you

We are all made in the image of God.
