As a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., Aeshia warmly welcomed the opportunity to speak at the Eta Mu chapter’s “Pretty Fit” event alongside the Georgia State University chapter of Be You! 413 to celebrate National Love Your Body Month. Girls must always be reminded that there is nothing rarer, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To us, that is the true essence of beauty.
During the event, Aeshia shared tips with over 100 Georgia State University female students on how to have a healthy body image and how to make fitness a priority in college.
Attendees had an opportunity to highlight what they learned by joining Be You! GSU’s #iwllbeconfident challenge. The ladies were asked to write how they will be confident and proudly post it on a wall for others to see. Not only did they talk confidence and fitness but they were able to sweat too! Fitness Instructor and Founder / CEO of Be You! 413 Sydney Combs lead a fun “butts and guts” instructional workout. Sydney explained, “Many women workout but do not know how to properly perform workouts to reach their goals”. Before the workout was over, ladies learned how to squat, lunge and plank. Pretty Fit was undeniably a night of fun, fitness, and sisterhood!
