“Everyone deserves a love like yours.”
Rejecting fatphobia and gaining confidence.
The singer on self-love, healing, and her new song, “Wherever U Go.”
Poetry by Rookie readers.
Ways to embrace the nice things people say about you.
Hating less, prom, and creating more.
What it means to forgive yourself.
When is it just avoidance?
Why focus on what we lack when there’s so much to admire?
