Joselyn Dumas looks like she is going to punch someone while slaying on the cover of Schick magazine‘s second issue. Should we avoid her? Hehehe!
Nah! The Ghanaian actress brought her curves, alongside some wisdom on the pages of the publication, opening up about self-love, female empowerment, and her transformational fitness journey, giving insight into her significant role in the forward motion of female emancipation with her new initiative, “10,000 Steps.”
“I feel healthier and I love it. I’m in tune with my body,” she talks about weight loss and fit being fashionable. “People confuse feeling healthy with looking the “right” size or having the perfectly placed curves. Weight loss definitely gives you the latter but the health advantage of being fit is the ultimate goal. Women are seeking knowledge; more women are aware of the reasons that healthy living is important. Being fit is now fashionable. West African women are learning the importance of moderation.”
On self-love & female empowerment, she stated, “Women need to appreciate themselves more, love themselves even more. A woman that loves herself knows that regardless of her skin color, weight or height, she is beautiful with greatness dwelling in her belly. I loved myself enough to realize that even though I shouldn’t be judged by my weight, obesity wasn’t allowing me to perform optimally.”
About her “10,000 steps” Initiative, she spills, “60% of women in the world struggle with their body image. Most women are preoccupied with either being too fat or too thin. The goal of my 10,000 steps initiative is to help as many women as possible realize that everyone is beautiful in their vessel, and the most important thing is to stay healthy and fit. We can’t all be skinny, we can’t all be fat, but we can all be healthy.”
60% of women today? Wow! That’s a lot.
