Cassandra Appleby

Cassandra Appleby is a marketing student at San Francisco State University, set to graduate in May. Being plus size her entire life, she is passionate about promoting body positivity and empowering others to find their confidence.

There is a serious problem with how the world values Fat People.

A Fat Girl’s Guide is a series of articles aimed toward breaking negative stereotypes surrounding fatness. “Fat” is a word riddled with pain, bias, and stereotypes. Cassandra’s goal is to break these connotations into easily digestible, bite-size chunks and hopefully make you laugh along the way.

What does it mean to be a Fat Girl? Well, it means that you don’t have to be a “girl” at all. These articles represent things fellow Fat Girls, Boys, Non-Binaries, Transsexuals, and the like go through.

A Fat Girl is…
• Anyone who has been marginalized for their size (regardless of gender, sexuality, race, age, disability – you get the picture).
• Anyone who has been told they are not valuable because of their appearance.
• Anyone who is tired of following society’s rules on how we should look, act, perform, and exist in this world.

How does Cassandra navigate being a Fat Girl in one of the most vain cities in the world? Well, read on.

Gyming While Fat

Gyming is not a real word but when you’re inexperienced in the discipline of physical exercise, it is as unfamiliar as wrapping your tongue around a word that doesn’t make sense. 

“I just want to help!”

5 Fat Hacks for Traveling While Plus Size

Summer is here and you deserve a vacation!

We swap our sweaters and coats for swimsuits and spaghetti-straps, choosing heat-friendly clothing over cozy cover-ups. 

It can be difficult to develop a healthy self-esteem when diet culture, unrealistic beauty standards, and fatphobia pressure you to hate your Fat body.
