Event Recap: Speaking at Refinery29 Celebrating Kelsey Miller’s Book, “Big Girl”

January 21 2016 | CeCe Olisa

It’s pretty exciting to watch my internet friends do amazing things.

It’s even more exciting when they ask me to be a part of it.

Kelsey Miller has just released a book called, “Big Girl: How I Gave Up Dieting and Got a Life” and I am so incredibly proud of her. I’ve read the book and it is so open and honest… I feel like there’s a little piece of all of us inside of her storytelling.

If you don’t know Kelsey, she’s the creator of the Anti-Diet project on Refinery29. She’s been super supportive of me in countless ways, so when she asked if I would be a speaker on a body image panel during her book launch, I immediately said yes.

Kelsey is the best! Soon after joining the staff of Refinery29, she created The Anti-Diet Project, one of the website’s most popular franchises. She is currently a Senior Features Writer and lives in Brooklyn.

    We would like to thank you once more for the lovely ideas you gave Jesse when preparing her post-graduate research and also, most importantly, pertaining to providing each of the ideas in one blog post. In case we had been aware of your site a year ago, we will have been kept from the pointless measures we were employing. Thank you very much.
