Rachel Annie, the winner of Atinka TV’s Di Asa show, has stated that the stereotype of plus-size persons being slow is untrue because they are intelligent and even more sensible than slender people.
Annie remarked in a recent appearance on SVTV Africa that plus-size people typically operate their own businesses owing to perspective in a word of advice to the youth. As a result, neither the government nor private businesses hire them.
“The government doesn’t hire plus-size individuals, because they think we’re stupid but reasonable.” Even if we are not fast, plus-size folks give it their all in whatever they do. “We take our time and finish it,” she explained.
Speaking on the stigma associated with being plus size, she said that she tried to shed weight by drinking a gallon of lime juice in high school, but it didn’t work. In high school, she claims she was frequently body humiliated by her classmates.
Annie also stated that the tournament impacted her life positively. It enhanced her confidence in public speaking, she claims, and she is unconcerned about the reactions of bystanders.
Annie has won the Di Asa competition on Atinka TV. She now holds the title of plus-size dancing champion.
