Ac­tress, “GLOW” and Blank Pan­ther For­mer var­sity ath­lete

Women's Health (South Africa) - - SPECIAL REPORT -

“When I tran­si­tioned from track star to ac­tress, I was told that I needed to be less mus­cu­lar and to stop work­ing out. So that’s what I did, but I wasn’t book­ing jobs. I wasn’t con­fi­dent; I wasn’t go­ing into the room as my true ath­letic self. Once I em­braced how toned I was and how big my thighs were, I started book­ing roles. Your nat­u­ral self, or what­ever you’re push­ing against, is go­ing to come out re­gard­less, so why not cel­e­brate it from the start?”
