“Transitioning from being a professional volleyball player to beauty pageants, I was and still am being criticized for being too big or too muscular. My legs are too big they say, honestly they really are
“instead of being insecure about it, which is a constant battle of choice, I just remind myself that these legs got me through years of intense volleyball, allowed me to jump, play and win.
“If you constantly find yourself comparing who you are and how you look with others, may this remind you that self love and confidence won’t be handed to you, it is a choice! I say let them hate, They‘ll never understand that these muscles are only made for champions,” Michelle posted.
