So, how did a slightly bonkers misfit with anorexia, bulimia and anxiety decide to solve their problems? I became a model. As you do. Charli Howard had always wanted to be normal - but for some reason, she couldn't quite find out how to do it. As a teenager, she felt like the only one who struggled with anxiety and self-esteem issues when everyone around her seemed to fit in. So she tried to embrace standing out: by becoming a model. Believing it would make her happy and envied, she set out single-mindedly to make it - and she achieved her dream. But the reality wasn't quite as glamorous as she'd hoped. The pressure on Charli to look a certain way took an extreme toll on her body and self-image, and no matter how thin she got, she was never thin enough. When Charli, though medically underweight, was fired by her modelling agency for being too big, she decided she'd had enough. She used her platform for good and spoke out about the insane standards of the modelling industry, whose images influence young women and girls all over the world. Now, Charli is comfortable in her skin for the first time ever, working happily as a plus sized model in New York. Here, she shares her journey, from anorexic and bulimic teenager to happy, healthy twenty-something.

'Hilarious and a timely look at women and our bodies' Juno Dawson 'Honest, rebellious and completely refreshing' Fearne Cotton Charli Howard grew up thinking that she wasn't good enough. She wasn't pretty enough. She wasn't rich enough. She wasn't thin enough. Fitting in wasn't exactly easy. Looking at the smiling girls in magazines, she came to the obvious conclusion: to be accepted, she has to be 'perfect'. She had to be a model. But what magazines don't tell you is that you can't Photoshop your problems away, and they can Photoshop a lot. So, when you're the thinnest you've ever been, your agency fires you, and you're battling anxiety and an eating disorder to boot, how do you get through it? You get angry, go viral and discover that, after all that, you're not alone. At least that's what Charli did.
