I was born in Cameroon and yes, I am from the French speaking part. I speak French and English fluently and I am currently learning Spanish as my third language. I’m the middle child out of five kids.
Growing up, I’ve always been athletic. I ran every weekend with my dad at the park full of sweaty men and an incomparable ambience. Being active is something I did for fun, until… I started to give myself to the social media world. There was constant advertisement of products I felt that need in order to be healthy, to be accepted. I saw girls with “perfect” bodies on Instagram that I wanted to attain. I trained to be skinny, not to be healthy. I hated seeing my body every time I looked in the mirror because I didn’t have a tigh gap or a flat stomach or a round butt.
It felt like nothing I did was right. I was constantly boggled down with ideas from the media that I felt lost in myself. Long story short? I was miserable. I thought being skinny like other girls would bring me happiness, but it shocker: It didn’t.
… Until one day I got sick and tired of it. Tired of picking my body and tearing down my self-esteem. I realized that my ways had to change if I wanted to stop this constant negativity in my life.
I thought, what if I started listening to my own body and what it needs? After so many attempts and failures, I decided to stop focusing on my body so much. I started focusing on developing my mind and cultivating healthy habits in my life. I started building my confidence from within by building my relationship with Christ, as crazy as that sounds and everything fell into place. I no longer had the weight on judgement on myself. As soon as I did that… everything just clicked.
This is why I made it my mission to help young women like you regain your confidence back, to fall in love with exercise and to trust yourself even when society tells you otherwise.
I know what it feels like to feel like you’re not good enough, to feel like you need to attain a certain body type to be loved, to feel like the world is somehow against you and everything you do. But you don’t have to go through that. You don’t have to let society standards define you. This is why I created Legit Kellina. A place for you to be the most authentic you. You are legit. You are the real deal. You are here, breathing and reading this for a reason and I hope that you stick around and sign up to receive my weekly newsletter right into your inbox for motivation and purpose.
