In 2013 I was approached to pen a piece for a plus size debutante ball which brought the spoken word piece PHAT Girl to life. Since that time, young and well-seasoned beauties have requested that I perform this piece at their events. Knowing that most women deal with low self-esteem, PHAT Girl is testament to becoming comfortable in our skin, loving who we are flaws and all. PHAT Girl premiered at the Piton International Film Festival on August 16, 2017 in St. Lucia and now I’m spreading the word that it's past time for us to get comfortable in our skin. It's time for us to embrace all of our flaws. It's time to own the fact that we are all fabulous--big, short, small, tall, dark, light--whatever. It's time to tell society to mind their own damned business because we are P.H.A.T. Girls--Pretty, Hot AND Tempting.

The next time you feel inadequate or if your self-esteem needs a boost, remember this haiku:

We are all P.H.A.T. Girls--
pretty, hot and so tempting.
Own it my dawlings!
