Hello Curvy Friends! My name is Katelyn. I’m the Iowa Chapter leader and I LOVE Curvy Girls! I like reading and writing, as well as marching band and mock trial. Curvy Girls is the next thing I love which all began when I was diagnosed with Scoliosis at the age of 12.
As a emotionally vulnerable 12 year old, I was very angry at my brace. I was angry because I didn’t know anyone else like me. I was too shy to tell my friends about it, and I felt overwhelmed.
After months of doom and gloom, my wonder woman mom found Curvy Girls online and I got the book, “Straight Talk with the Curvy Girls.. Suddenly, I wasn’t alone!
I’ve gained inspiration, support, and friendship from Curvy Girls and Leah’s message of “Doing it for the next girl” speaks to my heart.
As the Iowa leader I hope to spread inspiration, support, and friendship to you all too! Always remember… You are never alone!
Hi my name is Claire! I love to read, draw and listen to k-pop (Korean music). I live in the country and have many pets!
I was diagnosed with scoliosis when I was 10 years old. When I got my brace I didn’t understand what it meant to have scoliosis, so I wasn’t scared at all. But when I found out I had to wear it all the time or have surgery, I freaked out. I thought I was all alone and there was no one like me, but it turns out there are a lot of people with scoliosis. So I joined Curvy Girls and love going to meetings to share my journey with other girls like me.
