Have you ever been told that you don’t have what it takes to accomplish your biggest dreams? When hip hop dancer Amanda LaCount was 10 years old, a studio director told her that her body type didn’t “fit his vision” for his dance team and she was kicked out.

Instead, she uses them to fuel her body positivity movement, Breaking The Stereotype. If you’ve ever struggled with believing in yourself when others don’t, this episode is for you. https://www.marieforleo.com/2019/08/amanda-lacount/ You don’t have to fit in to be successful.
