Tess Holliday was the world’s first size-22 supermodel and a body positivity movement trailblazer. She started the campaign #effyourbeautystandards, where she showcased people who didn't fit into society's narrow beauty ideals, but were beautiful nonetheless. She teaches people to be comfortable in their own skin, and not to listen to other people's judgements or opinions.

One of her captions: "To the weird kids, the fat kids, the kids whose skin is darker than most, the kids who have learning disabilities, the kids who eat alone at lunch, the kids who are too afraid to live their truth because society has shown you that you don’t belong, let me say this: YOU MATTER. From a former weird, fat, poor, depressed kid who is now a weird fat anxious but HAPPY adult - it gets better, hang in there."
