When 27-year-old Emma Haslam takes the stage to audition for “Britain’s Got Talent,” Simon Cowell noticeably scoffs at her outfit choice. Emma knows what the judges are thinking, but she goes on to reassure them that size doesn’t matter for pole fitness because obviously, she is a bigger woman. As Emma goes on to perform, she shatters all his preconceived notions when showcasing her impressive talent, ultimately leaving Simon and the other judges with a big grin on their faces.
The TV judges weren’t the only ones who noticed Emma. According to the Daily Mail, her body confidence was so magnetic that plus-sized clothing brand, Yours Clothing, tapped her to model their products. Whether or not pole-dancing is your thing, we applaud Ms. Haslam’s promotion of positive body image and think she sets a tremendous example for women everywhere to unapologetically pursue their dreams regardless of their weight.
