‘The older I get, the more I look at my thighs, and they’re bigger than all my white friends’, and I’m like, ‘You know what? I love my thick thighs. And I love my chubby cheeks and my crazy hair,” Aisha told the paper.
Aisha, who was raised on the Gold Coast by her single Australian mother, went on to say that her insecurities have become her strengths.
‘All these things that used to make me feel insecure, and that people used to tease me about, I’ve grown to love. They become your strengths,’ she said.
Aisha added that it’s important to accept yourself and realise we’re not all meant to conform to one ideal.

‘I’ve got a pretty good head on my shoulders,’ Aisha added. ‘Not much has really changed, I am still just out there hustlin’.’
