How to take care of yourself without face masks, a budget, or that much time.
Reminders to help you start your day confidently.
Taking photos as an act of self-definition.
“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.
