Amina on designing the JBYFS T-shirt

 I made this shirt because I never want to forget why I am here. The greatest thing that I could ever be in this life  is a reminder to others that it is okay to “Just be your f *cking self”!  For most of my adulthood, I battled a life threatening eating disorder and debilitating depression. I spent many years as a spectator; always on the outside watching, trying to figure out a way to fit in. That desire to be a part of something was so strong, that I was willing to do anything (Including erase myself completely), if I thought that it would help me get “inside”. Fortunately, those days are SO over!  After embarking on a long journey of self discovery (which included years of therapy), I finally found the courage to love myself, and with that came so much of what I had been chasing for what seemed like my entire life.  Self acceptance is difficult and I sometimes still struggle,  but it is the only true path to freedom that I know.  

Lets get free together! Just be your f*cking self™ and maybe you’ll inspire others to do the same.
