My parents. They motivate not to settle anything and to try my best at anything that I partake in.
What drove you to create Thick Females Are Beautiful ?

How can the Plus Size community be given more positive attention in media?
It all start with a simple ideas such as mine. Then eventually branch out to different medias such as calendars, websites etc... while keeping a positive attitude and atmosphere. I believe it will leaves the media with no options but to respect the plus size community.
Are you single and does love help or hurt a man in business ?
I am currently single. It all depends. I don't think love hurts a man in business if your mate believes in your goal. If you know when it's time for business and when it's time to take time off from all the work to cater your woman then I don't think it will hurt anything. If not, it may bring your relationship and or business to a downfall.
How do you relax?
When I'm not too busy with school or too tired from work I relax by listening to music. Preferable R&B, Neo soul, kompa and Zouk Love...
How old are you ?
Where were you when you thought up TFAB?
Where do you see TFAB in 10 years?
