American Idol winner Candice Glover shares her story about how she overcame her insecurities. She talks about growing up and not feeling as pretty as the other girls. She even discusses dealing with self-confidence issues when she was on American Idol saying, “Being on the show was difficult at times because when we would be in our wardrobe fittings and stuff and I would, being a plus sized girl, I would look at, you know, all the other girls and be like ‘Oh my gosh it’s so easy to dress them’ or ‘It’s so easy for them to find what they’re looking for’ but me being more difficult.”
Despite her own struggles with body image, Candice overcame that and realized that she is beautiful, and so is everyone. Everyone has their own view of what beautiful is, and you have to find what beautiful means to you. Her advice?
Look in the mirror everyday and tell yourself that you love a certain feature whether it’s your eyes or hair or ears. She says, “Nobody can really define what beautiful is. If you feel beautiful and you exude that confidence that you know you’re a beautiful human being, then you know, anything is possible.”
