When Strawberry Belle was growing up, she was under the impression that she was unattractive. But now, as a 30-year-old woman, she's fully embracing herself and isn't afraid to wear what she wants, when she wants - and is even a body-positive model.

She now described her curvy body as a "rock star", but she admits that she didn't always feel that way when she was growing up, and went through a period of feeling inferior. But now, she says her body makes her feel "empowered and sexy", insisting that she feels sorry for people who try and make her feel negatively towards herself.

The model said she spent many years feeling unhappy in her own skin and because she grew up in the 90s, felt like the acceptable standard of beauty was size 10 and under, so she felt "conditioned" to not like herself. She spent a long time working on herself, but then she gained weight - yet this hasn't stopped her from loving every curve of her body.

She told The Sun: "I always felt like I had to apologise for my body, which makes me so sad to think about now. I absolutely love my body now. Of course I'll still have days where I don't feel 100% confident, but it's so much easier to move past now. I never thought I'd feel as confident with my body as I do now."

Strawberry now works as a full-time content creator and she makes a living off her image, and some men even beg her for dates. Sadly, her job doesn't come without trolls, as some people try to tear her down, but she doesn't let them, saying she feels "sad" for anyone who spends their time being mean to others. When you're a content creator she said sadly the criticism is "inevitable", but she says her fans defend her, which is "sweet."
