Sameera's letter talks about her early struggle with her scars. She used to fear, hate and be embarrassed by the stretch marks. However, the day she started embracing and wearing them as her armour, her confidence grew, and she felt powerful.

Sameera added that throughout her journey of stay fit and losing weight, her body changed a lot. She pledged in the letter to celebrate the scars that come in the process.

Sameera's letter is a gentle reminder to show immense love to our bodies and embrace it as it is.
