Laura's Story

My name is Laura, I am 35 years old and I am from Costa Rica.

"This campaign it’s important to me because for so many years I fought with my body, the appearance of it and two years ago I had an accident, and now I have a big scar and after 4 surgeries and 6 months of therapy I realize that my body it’s perfect not because of how it looks, but because it allow me to have an amazing life, and I still care how I look and exercise and what I eat, but now I live in peace on how I see myself without thinking what the others think about me."

Describe yourself in 3 sentences

I want to think that I am a warrior, finding always the beauty in life and finding all the positive things even in the worst situations.

 

What does your perfect day look like?

I love when my days run smoothly (this doesn’t happen all the time),with my plans, my job, exercise and spending time with my husband. And when I have some time to catch up with my friends and family back in Costa Rica 🇨🇷

 

What is your clothing style? What do you think your choice of swimwear style says about you?

My style it’s comfy and simply, I usually wear basic pieces and colours and since I move to Singapore 🇸🇬 I change my high heels to tennis. I choose this swimwear because love the style, it’s comfy so everything stays in it’s place without being worry that something will move. And love that you can use it in different ways.

 

How is your relationship with your body? Why is the #youbeyou campaign important to you?

This campaign it’s important to me because for so many years I fought with my body, the appearance of it and two years ago I had an accident, and now I have a big scar and after 4 surgeries and 6 months of therapy I realize that my body it’s perfect not because of how it looks, but because it allow me to have an amazing life, and I still care how I look and exercise and what I eat, but now I live in peace on how I see my self without thinking what the others think about me.

 

What is your favourite thing about your body?

My favorite part of me is my face, I am a really honest and transparent person and you can see everything that is happening to me in my face.
