How to Build Self Confidence | CeCe Olisa | TEDxFresnoState

It’s possible to change your life by changing your perspective on the perceived obstacle. CeCe Olisa is a Lifestyle Blogger and Co-Founder of the CURVYcon, a convention celebrating body positivity and plus size fashion during New York Fashion Week. CeCe’s blog and YouTube channel are dedicated to discussing fashion, fitness, dating, and life from a plus-size and body positive perspective.

CeCe creates wildly popular plus-size workout videos on her YouTube channel, encouraging women to work out because they love their bodies, not because they hate their bodies. An expert in body positivity, CeCe recently partnered with SHAPE Magazine for the 2018 SHAPE women’s half-marathon, as an honoree among 13 notable female leaders. She is described as a “person who proves you can be fit at any size” by MTV.com, CeCe lives by her motto, “Don’t wait on your weight to live the life you want.” This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Thank you so much for sharing..I am originally from Brazil and I moved to Canada in 2017 and I have been working at a bank but I am not confident about my English and I always think I’m not doing a good job, I am very critic of myself (Capricorns) but I go after whatever I want in life, it takes forever but I am slowly achieving my goals.
