My grandfather, her husband of 30 years, looked her in the eyes and said, “That’s stupid. I’m doing last year’s callback-heavy show “Bubblewrap” at Soho Theatre on May 6th and 7th.

I quickly realised that I have never uploaded any photos from my teenage years. I am still fat, my hair is still constantly static and flat, my nose is still pointy and I still get pimples and I still recall the hurtful words from the bullies. It is a defiance against the beauty industry and horrible kids all having done their best to break me and my spirit.
