Meet Amy
Manitoba Canada 


Hi! My name is Amy and I'm from Manitoba. I'm 21 years old, and my scoliosis was found in December of 2012. My curve was 47 degrees. For almost 2 years I worked with a physiotherapist to do different treatments. I had a lot of daily pain and after a long wait the doctors decided surgery was my best option. At the end of October 2014, I had surgery! I am fused from T5- L4. I'm so glad I did this and have been enjoying not having the pain I used too. 

I attended the convention in 2014, and became very inspired to share my story and positivity with others. I came back to Convention 2018 as someone post surgery! I'm very glad I found Curvy Girls and the amazing support. Everyone needs to know that they are not alone and we are always stronger together. 

Meet Mikayla 
Vancouver Canada 


My name is Mikayla and I am so excited to be the new leader for the Curvy Girls Vancouver Chapter! I am currently a competitive dancer and am just about to start high school. Outside of school and dance activities, I like to draw, paint, read, and hang out with friends. I also enjoy any chance I get to make someone smile or laugh.


I was diagnosed with scoliosis when I was eight and got my first brace then too. I was scared but since I was so young, I didn't care as much about how I looked or what other people thought. As I got older I got more and more self-conscious about those things. I didn't want anyone to know about the plastic brace under my baggy hoodies. When I first found the CG Instagram I saw people who were not afraid to share their stories and happy to educate others. They turned into really big role models for me because I wanted to do that too. As I started to go to more and more meetings, I came out of my shell and am now so happy to be becoming a leader! I love sharing my story and educating others. I am on my fourth brace now and my journey is still not over. I am so excited to learn about scoliosis for other people and hear their stories as well. Thank you so much CG for this opportunity!
