Model Fatima Timbo Says She Wont Be Defined By Her Height

Fatima Timbo, a four-feet model, says dwarfism poses no challenge to her, hence, she would not allow negativity to define her personality.

The 21 year old British model spoke to BBCNews recently about building her confidence as well as her work in inspiring others to feel comfortable in their own skin.

Timbo said she would not allow negative comments get to her or stop her from promoting body positivity for people with dwarfism. “I won’t be defined by my height,” she says. Timbo says she can’t change the way she looks or what people say about her – but she has changed the way she looks at herself. She said modelling boosted her confidence, and now she wants to inspire others to feel comfortable in their own skin.

Timbo, also revealed that after being bullied throughout high school, she learned to finally accept her condition and in 2017, she kick-started her modelling career. She has more than thirty-one thousand followers on instagram.
