Meet Ghanaian beauty Anita Matey. Matey, who was born in Ghana but raised in New York, uses her blog, Foreign Curves, to stand for the true beauty in all women, accepting the love a women has for oneself, and most importantly, baby girl is fierce in her style! “Foreign Curves is my life, I realized that once you start loving yourself—every aspect, every roll, every stretch mark, every imperfection—you literally start living,” Matey says.
“My sister, Brianna is another reason why I started my blog,” she says. “Kids are so mean, and she experiences bullying. I constantly tell her, ‘You’re beautiful, they are just mad.’ Interesting thing with her is, if someone calls me fat, she gets so mad! But when some calls her fat, she’ll start crying. I do this for her, I want her to one day grow up and accept the beauty in herself.”
When asked about what style means to her. Her response:
“Freedom! I’m freeing myself from society’s, “fashion rules.” I can wake up, wear what I want and be comfortable. I am comfortable in anything and everything!”
