Blows my mind that these things still happen…. that there are people in the world still perpetuating unhealthy beauty standards.
This is Miss Iceland, Arna Ýr Jónsdóttir, who recently traveled to Las Vegas to take part in Miss Grand International, one of the world’s leading international beauty pageants. But she is now dropping out because organizers told her she was too “fat” and encouraged her to “stop eating breakfast” and “eat just salad for lunch.”
So she penned a powerful letter as a ‘goodbye’ to the pageant, and posted it on her Instagram page. It’s now blowing up everywhere.
Way to go, girl!
