HELLO my name is [name edited out – poster’s names are never included with submissions]. I am 23 years old and i am from Kenya. i came across the labia project when i was 18 years and suffering from low self esteem. i had looked at myself and compared myself to other girls my age and i saw that my labia was big which I didn’t understand and i felt weird. But all that changed when i came across this blog and i knew i was not a freak. After posting on this blog i got great comments that boosted my esteem. let no one make fun of you you are all beautiful in your own way. Learn to love yourself and trust in God.
