Nicole Mejia’s Story

Nicole Mejia struggled with body image at a very young age and knows first-hand what it’s like to be bullied and teased for being overweight.

Nicole is a model and fitness personality out of Miami. She is known for her natural curves and motivating perspective, and has been inspiring women all over the world to accept and better themselves in a natural and holistic way.
