#MyBodyVictory – Meet Clara Holmes

Welcome Clara Holmes to the Curvy Kate family. The self-confessed shopaholic is one of our stars in our  #MyBodyVictory campaign. Clara who is a blogger at RollinFunky and model based in London says she owns over 80 pairs of heels and can’t stop!

Clara told us about how 5 years ago she lost the use of her legs and spoke about her life before becoming a wheelchair user, “I came from being a self-conscious walker who didn’t have confidence, to becoming a wheelchair user which had a further impact on my confidence”, she went on “I spent too many years being self-conscious and not being happy with who I am”.

Clara had found a change in her outlook when entering into her 30’s, “The turning for point f0r me was when I was going to turn 30. The previous 5 years was a struggle mentally and emotionally whilst I got used to my new way of life. I spent the past half of a decade being miserable about my situation that I couldn’t change. I was no longer going to compare myself to other people. I was going to enter my 30’s and take advantage of my new way of life.”

The positive attitude allowed Clara to make the most of her new situation and allowed her to be herself.

She finished with “my confidence grew. It grew because I accepted who I am.”

Just like Clara we believe that once you learn to embrace what you have it can make your life that so much brighter.
