my name is Kiki, I am 23 years old and used to be a model in Austria for the past few years. I'd eaten healthy without worrying about it, loved playing beach volleyball which kept me in good shape and enjoyed travelkng as many countries as possible. Just until that one day... On my way to another job, I had a serious car accident. I couldn't walk properly for several months and obviously my career ended pretty fast. I fell into a little depression, which kept me from eating healthy, I couldn't do any sports and my injuries didn't progress as expected, it was a huge black whole for more than 2 years now... I finally decided to move to Canada and found my spirits again. A recent tragic incident reminded me of how short life is and how beautiful it can be if you just take whatever you are given, be positive and make the best out of it. That's the reason I started to make my journey public. I am certain that there are so many more people like me outside there in this world that had similar problems or can relate in any kind of way of what I've been through. An accident, loosing a beloved person, getting fired at work or a sudden breakup, we all have our burdens to carry and they are never comparable to each other, but only we can find our ways out of this one way road of self-pity.
Accompany me on my way back to self-acceptance, self-love, self-awareness and enjoyment as I am slowly finding the confidence again to take selfies without a snapchat filter. And I'm not saying I want to be as thin as I was before the accident.. I just wish to feel strong and confident again, because as we all know, beauty comes in all sizes!
I can't wait to hear your stories. It doesn't matter how tiny the step, it depends on the persistence you put in your legs that bring you to your goal. ❤️
