Body Mass Index, dress size, thigh gap, supplements, measurements. None of these matters when you don't feel like the only space you are guaranteed - your body - is yours.

Bahira is a sophomore double majoring in political science and literature. She is an amateur spoken word poet with a passion for change, activism, and social work. She believes in the power of art and expression in unleashing change.
