Switch TV presenter Joyce Maina recently opened up on her body-shaming experience while encouraging women to embrace their bodies and have confidence in them.
Through her Instagram page, the media personality shared her opinion by sharing a photo of international celebrities who were body-shamed for various reasons.
“There’s no winning. Being a woman is hard enough, and is made harder by your unsolicited opinion. Especially when it comes from other women! So sad
“Thank God my self-esteem is in check, I’d never survive this industry if it wasn’t. I’d have probably ended my life, or tried to cause of the number of times I’ve been trolled,” she narrated.
Maina added how she was criticised for being too skinny at one point and having too much cellulite on the other, further calling upon parents to teach their daughters how to love themselves in order to survive life as a woman especially in Kenya.
“Anyway, the moral of the story is? Teach your daughters self-confidence and self-love. It’s the only way to get through life as the female species,” she added.
Recently, media personality and political hopeful Tony Kwalanda recently disclosed that he blames himself for not pursuing his ex-girlfriend, Joyce Maina after they broke up.
Speaking in a recent TV interview, the media personality said sometimes he wonders why the two never sat down and sort out issues that led to their split.
“When I am coming to work, we meet with Joyce more often and we talk and share stuff, in fact, she encouraged me the other day and told me ‘Tony, go for it, we are coming to help you campaign’ and I was like ‘oh my God, I was about to shed a tear’
“I blame myself for not really pursuing Joyce. Sometimes I sit down and ask myself why we never sat down and addressed those small issues and worked on them and get back the relationship,” Kwalanda said.
