Meet Body Positive Babe – Detras Powell
The celebration of people, no matter what shape or size is a beautiful way to tell the story of self love. Meet Detrus Powel. Detrus has recently been named 2nd runner up and Rising Star in the Ms. Full Figured USA PLUS 2016 pageant.
Confidence is something that shines through with Detrus. She had doubts about entering the pageant, but she put those doubts aside. She loves who she is and this self-love gave her the confidence to compete.[/vc_column_text][thb_image alignment=”center” image=”2833″ img_size=”500×500″][vc_column_text]Photo: Hem Williams Photography
Detrus speaks passionately about self-love and learning to be happy with who you are. She is happy and confident because she realises that she doesn’t have to be like everyone else to be accepted. She embraces who she is, in the body that she has.
Detrus started pole dancing fitness in January as part of the preparation for the pageant. When she began the class she was the only plus size women but was determined to succeed and credits pole dancing fitness for the increase in her upper body strength. This increased muscle and strength has given Detrus even more confidence.[/vc_column_text][thb_image alignment=”center” image=”2832″ img_size=”500×500″][vc_column_text]Photo: Hem Williams Photography
Detrus delivers a message of self-love and discovered that until she learned to love herself she couldn’t really be the person she wanted to be. She is in that place now and sees the world in a different way.
Detrus has some advice to share, “The way you are is perfect for you. Whatever situation you are in is not permanent. It will pass.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
