The Project :
Mira (weightlifting coach & competitive athlete) wanted a poster with the phrase "Lift As You Are" – to celebrate USA Weightlifting and Powerlifting finally allowing the space for transgender athletes to compete. She wanted to depict an athlete that would represent and support people of all sizes, shapes, and genders.
I had a lot of fun creating this and was thrilled to participate in this kind of message!
As someone who never saw representation in the media of anyone who remotely looked like me growing up, I wanted to make sure I included curly hair, an androgynous style, and of course some tattoos to represent breaking the norm.
