I'm a sixteen year old girl from American and I've been singing my entire life. I sing in a professional girls chorus that's competing in Austria next week and I also sing through my church and school. Music is my life whether it be classical, pop, or r&b. I love it. In fact, I want to be a choir teacher. I've had this planned out forever and I've always had that fire in my heart.
But in the past year, I've come across an obstacle in my life. I've developed an eating disorder; bulimia. Life has been very hard and as a result, bulimia has unfortunately taken a toll on my voice. This past Easter, my parents found out and I'm officially in recovery. Some days I want to recover and some I don't but there has been one person who has inspired to me to recover and that person is Adele.
She's such a talented singer with a powerful voice and personality. Her self confidence shines through and it really inspires me. It doesn't matter that she isn't skinny because she does what she loves and she is perfect how she is. She could be a size 2 or a size 12 and she's still perfect how she is. She shines. And I've realized that maybe I'll never be a size two either but music is how I shine and I'm learning to accept that.
So basically, the reason I spontaneously made an account is to say, thank you Adele. You've really helped me in my process of recovery and have helped me see that a singer's voice is what makes her loved, not her body. And it's important to love the body God gave me. Love you Adele <3
