Brittany Gibbons was unguarded, witty and authentic as we bounced around in a delightful conversation. I can see why this young woman has such a huge and devoted following. Her message is timely and urgent as so many women struggle with body-image issues. Brittany also uses humor to help get her point across. There is a lot of wisdom here, especially for parents of young girls.
