I met Maryam Faresh over a decade ago, she became a very dear friend/healer and introduced me to my mentor (Curvy U Contributor) Amankeda and together they changed my life. A very gifted psychic and counselor I knew Maryam would have an interesting perspective on how women can define strength in a much healthier way.
I couldn’t make up these news stories if I tried. For all the intensely serious stories surrounding us curvy girls, I had to post this because I really enjoy Amy Schumer’s sense of humor. Talk about a true Swaggerette!

An Urban Medicine Woman connects with nature no matter how vast the concrete is that surronds her. She plants seeds, waters the sprouts and enjoys her daily harvest. She appreciates the awe of nature and dedicates time to cultivating natural beauty…” – Arin Ingraham, Guided by Gaia
