As a 300+ pound woman, she thought the best way to share the secrets of the fat world should be told by an insider. The world of size acceptance was introduced to her via accident, where she found an avenue for friendship, resource sharing, art, and a story to share with the world. Touched by the stories she has both experienced and witnessed, Nerusskaya decided to share story of the collective plight, including her own, to lighten and enlighten those willing to listen. She is a living example that life should not wait, despite your weight. Fat girls float because we need to rise above constant condemnation from society and the media about our bodies and size discrimination. Rise above, that is.
