I was truly ecstatic when Lucy asked me to join the GrrlPunch team. I meditated for quite a while on what I wanted my contributions to this website to mean to me as well as to others. I have finally come to the conclusion that I desire for the things I contribute to be things that I wish I had had at my disposal when starting my teen years. I want others to embrace themselves no matter what they look like, what dress size they wear, or how much acne they have. I hope others feel as welcome as I felt here on GrrlPunch.
