Huma Qureshi on Femina and the HHC Debate!


Huma Qureshi Femina July 2014 Cover

Read this post on HHC this morning and have to say, I am so sick and tired of our media potraying beauty of women in a certain way that I am practically off mainstream media!

Kudos to the team that came up with this cover and to Huma for making such a statement about her body image and the lack of need to confirm to social norms.

I remember an incident where people told me about a new girl at work who a lot of them admired. Agreed she had style and confidence but I wasn't as gaga over it. When asked the reason, I said that I don't admire stick thin girls. Being big and round curvy, I have always found the need to explain why I am not obsessed with my weight and figure. Even today, I have become more fitness oriented than body image oriented. I realised that shrinking to a size 4 just ain't enough motivation for me... now completing a half marathon, that is more like it :)
