Who says that it’s not possible to follow your dreams? Unfortunately, there are many people who will always try to discourage you on your way up the ladder, and stop you from reaching for the stars but that’s no reason to stop. And if there’s someone that can relate to this, it’s Whitney Thore, the amazing dancer in the video below.
Whitney has had a passion for dancing for years and while a whole lot of people tried to shut down her passion for dance, she decided to prove everyone wrong. The dancer has been suffering from eating disorders and self-confidence issues—she gained a large amount of weight because of polycystic ovarian syndrome.
For many that know, polycystic ovarian syndrome is not a curable condition and Whitney gained 100lbs as a result of it. At this point she says that a lot of people began to call her “fat an disgusting”. Just when we thought that the world was becoming a better place, people still struggle with acceptance all around the world—this is a very sad reality.
But these negative comments and backlash from society didn’t stop this talented young woman from answering back! She decided the best way to get back at everyone who was making fun of her, or was “disgusted” by her, was to show them what she CAN do.
Whitney started a posting videos of her dancing under the name “A Fat Girl Dancing”. And with this she wasn’t just able to show off her epic dance moves and all the talent that she has, but she also got an enormous amount of support and encouragement!
