Thirty percent of all plus size teen girls in America are overweight. Many are faced with issues and challenges that their standard sized peers do not endure; trying to find fashionable and trendy clothing to fit their fuller frames, missing out on being asked out to the prom, being rejected by their peers, and so much more. As a result, many fight to remain confident and accept themselves in the skin they're in, and end up turning to negative influences such as promiscuity, gangs, drugs and alcohol, violence, eating disorders, depression, hopelessness, and other compromised lifestyles. Dr. Jacqueline Lawrence, Host, Christian Counselor, and founder of Plus Teen USA Pageant and Conference (www.plusteenusa.com), having a love for plus size teens, and a passion for helping them to love and accept themselves so that they can live their God ordained purposes, provides a safe and candid place where plus teens can come together to share their feelings and gain insight and encouragement as they grow in confidence and self-love.
