My Interview With Michelle Salas

In this interview Michelle and I talk about body image issues, eating disorders, fat shaming, raising boys to respect women, her childhood in Mexico, and growing up with big boobs. It’s awesome, she’s hilarious. Enjoy!

If you’d like to digest it in smaller bits, I have a playlist called “Interview Clips: Issues Girls and Parents Face” where you can watch clips of the interview one topic at a time, but I highly recommend watching the whole interview.

Michelle is passionate about motherhood, cake, and salsa dancing. Her day starts at 5am with exercise, then she fills it with homeschooling and hiking with her boys and running her very special bakery with her friend Isa. Here’s a quote from their website:

“We create hand-crafted homemade baked art for your special occasions. It is our mission to provide you with beautiful works of edible art made from scratch with Love.”

I highly recommend you visit their beautiful website.
