NLse nichtje Bella en Gigi Hadid doet mee aan Curvy Supermodel!

De 20 deelnemers van het nieuwe RTL-programma Curvy Supermodel zijn bekend! Een van de deelnemers van het nieuwe programma is de 18-jarige Joann van den Herik. Ze is het nichtje van de wereldberoemde half Nederlandse modellen Gigi en Bella Hadid en ze is echt prachtig!

Het modellenbestaan zit duidelijk in het bloed. Ze is al actief als plussize model en zal vanaf 26 januari te zien zijn op RTL 5 in de Spinoff van het programma Holland’s Next Top Model: Curvy Supermodels. Vind je haar niet sprekend lijken op haar nichtjes? Ze laat via haar Instagram weten heel blij te zijn met deze kans:

“Eindelijk mag ik het jullie vertellen! Ik mag meedoen aan het eerste seizoen van Curvy Supermodel. Ik ben zo dankbaar voor deze kans en ik heb er zoveel zin in! Ik hoop dat jullie het leuk vinden."


All my life I've been focused on my weight. "Fat" is used so often with women. I grew up thinking "fat" is the worst thing you could be called by someone. I thought "fat" was an insult. But calling someone fat, says more about the person who said it, than about yourself. You see, I HAVE fat, I'm not fat. Fat does not define me. I know what I eat, how much I exercise. I know that I'm a lot more than just my appearances. Sometimes I take flattering photos with make-up on (on the left) and sometimes I'm just not feeling posing and HATE make-up (on the right). Both is okay. Both bodies are OKAY. Most people would say picture two is an unflattering photo. But I love it. I love that you can see my imperfections, my fatrolls, my imperfect skin, my cellulite. Those are all my insecurities in one single picture. This is a big step for me because I'm still insecure and not 100% confident, but I want to show you guys that even people with many followers aren't perfect. I used to HATE every inch of my body. That mindset not only made me grumpy towards myself, but towards every one around me. It made me envious towards other women. I'm happy I realised that my body is great and that "perfect" doesn't exist. With this picture, I wanted to show every boy and girl out there, that YOUR BODY IS BEAUTIFUL. Your body is gorgeous, your body is unique, your body is yours. You can have fatrolls. You can have pimples. You can have stretchmarks. You can have everything you want. You can be whatever you want. Our stories and experiences make us who we are and that's the most amazing thing. Take that with you and embrace your body, embrace those curves! Make your insecurities your own, turn them into something positive, make them YOU! Don't hate your body until you lose weight or get the perfect body at the gym, do it the whole way, do it NOW! Loving yourself is greatest achievement of all #LoveYourself #LoveYourBody #BodyPositive

If you google "saggy boobs" you immediately find searches like "how to fix saggy boobs" and "what do men think of saggy boobs". That's actually really sad, because it's the most normal thing in the world. I used to be ashamed of my big and saggy boobs. I hated them and thought I was fat just because I had bigger boobs than most girls my age. I hid them and wore these oversized sweaters, because I thought my boobs looked like grandma boobs Well girls, remember, that even if our boobs aren't presented as "beautiful", we should remember that they're OUR boobs and they will always be beautiful. No matter what shape your boobs are, what size they have, if the left one is bigger than the right one, DON'T HIDE THEM IF YOU DON'T WANT TO! I'm glad I accept my body as it is now and if I leave a mark on the world it’s that I want to encourage people to love themselves, to be confident for who they are and how they look, and to normalise all the things that are seen as ‘ugly’. #LoveYourBody #BodyPositive #SaggyBoobsMatter

When I post pictures in lingerie or showing my body, whether it's in a flattering way or not, I always get the same reaction: "I would never dare to post something like that". And I understand them completely. We live in a world where it's normal to hide your body, to be ashamed of yourself, to stay inside when you have an acne break out. We live in a world where it's encouraged to be thin and people will call you fat as if it's an insult rather than an observation. I won't stand for that. First of all, to all the boys and girls out there, you don't have to be ashamed of yourself. There's only one YOU. You're unique and your imperfections make you special. I know it's hard to see sometimes, but don't let your worth be determined by your stretchmarks or the marks on your face. Everyone has flaws and those flaws, as perfectly normal as they are, make us who we are. Your body is a temple, why hide it? Be proud of it. Show it to the world!! Adressing your insecurities rather than hiding them makes you learn to love yourself so much more. Wear that croptop eventhough you have fatrolls, wear those shorts eventhough you have bigger legs than the girls on magazine covers, wear that cute bralette eventhough you have saggy boobs (Like I'm doing in this picture right here ). You're not alone, you're not weird, you're not ugly. It's totally normal and it's FREAKIN BEAUTIFUL. It's okay to have insecurities, it's okay to not be okay sometimes, it's okay to not be confident all the time, but don't let it ruin your life or stop you from doing the things you love. I stand for body positivity, I stand for imperfections, I stand for love your curves. What do you stand for? #LoveYourCurves #LoveYourBody #BodyPositive #EveryBodyIsBeautiful
