In Urbandictionary.com, SWAGGER is defined: How one presents him or her self to the world. Swagger is shown from how the person handles a situation. It can also be shown in the person’s walk. e.g. Ryan: “Denzel Washington has swagger in all his movie rolls”.
I embrace the urban dictionary’s definiton of SWAGGER. Having SWAGGER does not require arrogance or pomposity. It is the genuine belief that you are fabulous and you love yourself as you are, no holds barred. Gabourey Sidibe, is a true example of Curvysta Swagger. On the cover of Ebony, Essence, V magazine and now, in the February 22, 2010 issue of People magazine, she explained how she found her inner confidence.
After being teased for her weight, dark skin and being told “she would never really be anything”, Sidibe found her SWAGGER. “I decided for myself that whatever people said, and no matter what I look like, I was going to be happy with myself. It’s like a force of will I gained inside, and ever since it’s worked for me.”
Here are photos of women at the Bronner Bros show with the Curvysta Swagger!
Be thankful for who you are and find your “inner” SWAGGER!
